The Social Cash Transfer Pilot Programme (SCTPP) in Ethiopia is the Tigray Regional government’s pilot of a social cash transfer currently managed at the national level. The primary objective of the programme is to improve the quality of lives of orphans and other vulnerable children (OVC), the elderly and persons with disabilities as well as to enhance their access to essential social welfare services such as health care. At the time of the baseline household survey, beneficiary households received 155 Birr (equivalent to around US$8.50) plus additional amounts for children, disabled members, and dependent elderly above 60 years of age. Overall, the study has provided direct evidence that the SCT pilot programme influences the livelihood strategies of the poor in a differentiated fashion across household head gender and geographic area. The programme has helped families by increasing food security and bringing children out of working household activities, which fit with the objectives of the programme.
