–Government says it will put in more effort to ensure the Social Cash Transfer works to the advantage of the vulnerable people throughout the country.


Ministry of Community Development Mother and Child Health Director of Planning, Simmy Chapula said government is in a hurry to scale up the Social Cash Transfer programme by 2014 so that it can be present in 50 districts.


Speaking during a sensitization meeting in Chavuma district today, Mr Chapula said though economic growth does not usually translate into poverty reduction he noted that the introduction of Social Cash Transfer will reduce poverty and hunger in communities.


He said government together with its cooperating partners has invested more funds so that the programme continues to promote human development through improved nutrition, health, education and gender equality among the beneficiaries.


Mr Chapula urged civil servants and stakeholders to support the Social Cash transfer scheme so that even hard to reach areas are serviced in line with government’s vision.


The Social Cash Transfer is a social protection intervention in which the poor of the poorest receive actual cash for self-sustainability.
