We shared N193 billion to pregnant women and lactating mothers in seven months — Jigawa state government.

The Jigawa State government says it spent N192.96 billion to implement its Maternal and Child Cash Transfer programme between November 2021 and June 2022.

.
Ibrahim Rabakaya, executive secretary, Jigawa State Rehabilitation Board, disclosed this during a three-day validation of Kaduna state’s Graduation Youth-Focused Social Protection programme on Wednesday in Kano.

Mr Rabakaya said the programme was introduced in 2021 based on the successes of the cash transfer programme that was implemented in the state by Action Against Hunger (AAH). He explained that the MCCT, which was implemented under the Child Development Grant programme, provided the needed evidence about the effectiveness of cash transfer in addressing poverty and vulnerability.

Mr Rabakaya said the intervention targeted 5,740 beneficiaries – pregnant women and lactating mothers, for conditional cash transfer across the state.
