This report investigates the links between child wellbeing, children’s care, family cohesion and the Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty Programme (LEAP). LEAP, a national social protection scheme, aims to reduce extreme poverty in the country and is centred on providing cash transfers to the most vulnerable.
The research is a joint initiative by Family for Every Child and the Centre for Social Protection (CSP) at the Institute for Development Studies (IDS) in the UK. Challenging Heights led the research in Ghana. It is part of a wider study on the linkages between social protection and children’s care in Ghana, Rwanda and South Africa.
