dfid_ukIn Uganda, UK support is helping 128,000 senior citizens, many of whom rely on cash transfers, to change their poverty status. Senior citizens use the cash transfer to increase their food and health expenditure for themselves and their families.
By focusing on the elderly, the UK is helping society’s most vulnerable improve their livelihoods and have better social standing within the communities.
UK aid is expected to reach 226,000 senior citizens by 2020.
DFID has been a leading figure in the expansion of social protection in low income countries. Small predictable transfers help poor people to meet their basic needs (such as food, clothes, shelter, clean water, soap). Cash transfers are one of the few interventions that can reach the poorest, quickly, and at scale. It is a key intervention for getting to zero poverty and leaving no-one behind, particularly women and girls and people living with disabilities.
