Programmes successes l.jpg

Programmes Successes

  • School feeding programme has increased the attendance rate

  • Financial security for old age pensioners

  • Reduced stigma to OVC

  • Food security

  • Provision of shelter to the needy


Challenges on the programmes l.jpg

Challenges on the programmes

  • No linkages with other programmes, some benefit more than once (e.g. an orphan staying with a destitute grandparent)

  • There is no single register for all the claim holders of different programmes (programmes scattered in different Ministries)

  • Cases of abuse of the benefits are reported (especially for the OVC) by the caregivers

  • Separation of siblings by relatives so as to benefit from the programme

  • Temporary Destitute persons not willing to graduate from the programme and engage in income generating programmes

  • Lack of an over arching policy for all the safety net programmes


Lessons learnt l.jpg

Lessons Learnt

  • Need to move to cash transfers rather than food basket so as to give claim holders the chance to use the cash in other beneficial activities within the household

  • The universal coverage does not bring stigma against the beneficiaries

  • Need to determine the impact of these programmes at household and individual levels

  • Non targeting for Orphans and OAP – brings issue of sustainability

  • There is need for a ministry of Social Development to coordinate all the safety net programmes.
