In October 2014 Ayala Consulting signed a new contract with the Government of Malawi for 2 additional years of support to the Social Cash Transfer Program. Part of the scope of the second phase of the consultancy includes support to the Ministry of Gender, Children, Disability and Social Welfare with expansion plans. In November 2014 the Social Cash Transfer Program officially rolled out in seven new districts with funding from the European Union. With the program’s expansion, Ayala Consulting has introduced the use of tablets for data collection during the targeting process. Electronic data collection was successfully tested in Mwanza District and will gradually be introduced in the additional six new districts. Ayala Consulting has been supporting the program since 2012 through re-design and reforms of program processes, technical assistance and financial co-management.
