Abstract

The main objective of this study was to find out the challenges facing the poor households to comply with cash transfer conditionalities. In the context of the increasing demand of conditional cash transfers in the development agenda of many less developed countries, this research study provides an analytical overview of the challenges faced by the poor households and the Most Vulnerable Children (MVC) in complying with the conditionalities of the Productive Social Safety Net (PSSN) Programme. This study was conducted at Iguguno Ward, Mkalama District Council in Singida Region. The identified poor households with children receive cash transfer but in turn their children are required to be enrolled to schools and fulfill the required conditions set by TASAF. In order to continue receiving cash transfer bimonthly their children are supposed to keep on attending to schools. Interviews were directed to officials who are responsible for the day to day implementation activities at the local government council, questionnaires were directed to local government leaders, teachers and head of the households, while in-depth focused group discussions were conducted with local government leaders and school teachers. This study noted that there were pending issues and remaining challenges for the programme, these relate in particular to strengthening mechanisms of local participation; coordinating the CCT with other dimensions such as productive projects; lengthening the duration of benefits for meeting human-capital objectives through cash transfer conditionalities.
