​The Lesotho Child Grants Programme (CGP) is an unconditional cash transfer targeted to poor and vulnerable households with children, which was established to improve the living standards of orphans and other vulnerable children.

This project aims to provide technical assistance and guidance to Lesotho’s Ministry of Social Development to improve the community based targeting (CBT) strategy and approach for the Child Grants Programme and other poverty targeted social assistance programmes. This project aims to update the CBT methodology of the CGP through improving the participatory wealth ranking and household selection process and ensuring that programme staff and Village Assistance Committees are well instructed on how to apply the CBT approach.
