CGP Program Staff review forms at the end of a day of Targeting.

Preparations for Community Validation are underway for approximately 16,000 households. In this part of the Targeting process, Village Assistance Committees confirm the poverty level of potential beneficiary households. Ayala Consulting and the Ministry of Social Development provided refresher training to District Officers to carry out the validation. Once validated, approximately 3,200 households will be added to the existing 21,800 who are currently receiving the grant.
