Overview: The Cash Transfer for Orphans and Vulnerable Children (CT-OVC) Project, approved in 2009, expanded the pilot CT-OVC Programme from 47,000 households caring for OVC in Kenya to around 83,000 households (increasing the coverage of OVC from around 140,000 to 250,000). Early evidence suggests that the program is having a significant impact on poverty reduction, school enrollment and birth registration for OVC. Using IDA resources, innovative technology is being introduced to transfer payments to beneficiaries in a faster and more secure way than was previously possible.
