  • autorenew Implementation (Status)

A $3.4M pilot project delivering large cash transfers to ~4,400 protracted refugees and host community households in Uganda. This program delivered transfers of ~$660 to households living in extreme poverty in both refugee and local, host communities. The program was implemented in Uganda: home to over a million refugees, and also some of the world’s most progressive policies towards them. In Ugandas, refugees have the right to work, set up businesses, and are given small plots of land on which to live and farm. As such, it provided the opportunity to test the impact of large, unrestricted cash transfers, in an environment where refugees have relative freedom to invest them.
