About

Transforming Cash Transfers is a one-year, DFID-funded study investigating beneficiary and community perspectives on cash transfer programmes in five countries - Kenya, Mozambique, the Occupied Palestinian Territories (both Gaza and West Bank), Uganda and Yemen.

This is a unique and exciting project that employs participatory and qualitative approaches, including participatory photography, to amplify marginalised voices that otherwise might not be heard.  

Information and resources tailored for multiple audiences can all be found on this dedicated project website.
