Citizens Centre for Integrated Development and Social Rights (CCIDESOR) is set to hit the field running for the third quarter monitoring of the beneficiaries in Anambra State where it is monitoring the National Social Safety Nets Project (NASSP).
It would be recalled that in Anambra, CCIDESOR is monitoring the project in six local governments of Ihiala, Orumba South, Anambra West, Ayamelum, Dunukofia and Awka North. The National Social Safety Net Project (NASSP) under the Social Investment Programme of the Federal Government has been helpful to the beneficiaries of the projects.
In the course of the monitoring, it is expected that the monitors will find out from the beneficiaries what they doing with fund and how it has supported their lives and livelihood.
The program uses a combination of targeting methods including geographic targeting, Community-Based Targeting (CBT), and the application of a Proxy Means Test (PMT) for identifying and screening poor and vulnerable households for its interventions. The database of identified poor households, families or individual called State Social Register of Poor and Vulnerable Households (SRPVH) or Social Register of Poor (SRP) or simply Social Register (SR), can be used for selecting beneficiaries for NASSP and other targeted social safety net programs in the future as part of a social protection system.
CCIDESOR monitoring has continued to capture the feelings of the beneficiaries which tend towards asking the federal government to increase the space for more persons to benefit. It would be recalled that President announced that the register will be increased by one million.
