CHILD SUPPORT PROGRAMMEPAKISTAN
HypothesisCSP Pilot Hypothesis: linking additional cash support to the FSP families with children would force them to invest in human capital development. By doing this, PBM can further assist ongoing government efforts towards achieving universal primary education.
RationaleFood Support Programme is Pakistans largest cash transfer program. It reaches some 1.45 million households. The annual budget is close to US$ 70 million dollars per yearPakistan Bait-Ul-Mal with technical assistance from WB and DFID decided to pilot and evaluate the impact of offering additional cash transfers conditional on families sending their children to school.For the pilot, 5 districts were chosen with about 50,000 FSP families. Out of them, about 27,000 families had children of ages 5 to 12.
