Qualitative research on the impacts of social protection on rural women’s economic empowerment

Reports: Impact Evaluation Report

In 2006, the Government of Malawi initiated a Social Cash Transfer Programme (SCTP), which it called Mtukula Pakhomo (‘Lifting up Families’). Malawi’s SCTP is an unconditional cash transfer programme designed to reduce poverty and hunger, increase school enrolment and attendance and improve the health, nutrition, protection and well-being of children by delivering regular and reliable cash transfers to ten percent of ultra-poor and labour-constrained households with high dependency rates. This report presents the findings from a qualitative research study, conducted in September 2015, on the Malawi’s SCTP and its impacts on rural women’s economic empowerment.
