Cash transfer programming leverages cash, vouchers, mobile payments and/or e-payments to meet the food needs of the beneficiaries in circumstances where food is locally available for purchase. When used appropriately, cash transfers enhance dignity, choice, diet diversity and boost the local economy.
World Vision is the leading NGO implementing cash transfer programmes to enhance food security. Currently, World Vision is using this innovative modality in 21 countries, across the Middle East, East Africa, Southern Africa, West Africa, Asia and Latin America.
See the Cash Atlas for a global map of where cash transfer programming is implemented.
