All is set for the Citizens Center for Integrated Development and Social Rights (CCIDESOR) to monitor the federal government conditional cash transfer under the National Social Safety Project.
CCIDESOR who happens to be among the first eleven organizations shortlisted will monitor the project/program as Third-Party Monitor (TPM) and it will monitor the cash transfer in Anambra state which happen to be the only state in the southeast that benefited from the program.
The essence of the program is to lift the Poor and Vulnerable Households (PVHHs) out of poverty under the Household Uplifting Poverty (HUP).
In the course of the program, the poorest of the poor, will be lifted out of poverty as each targeted household will be paid 5000 every month which will be paid in two months, that is 10,000.
Information available to CCIDESOR says about 8323 households beneficiaries are in the scheme in Anambra. The process of mapping beneficiaries for the project ranges from geographical targeting, pre-sensitization, sensitization, mobilization and engagement and proxy means test. After that the names will be mined and put in the social register. It is a community based project
CCIDESOR was at Awka North to test run the effectiveness of the monitoring tools. The organization will monitor six local government areas across three zones in the state and they are: Awka North, Ayamelum, Orumba South, Anambra west, Ihiala and Dunukofia.
