Malawi’s Social Cash Transfer Programme (SCTP) is an unconditional cash transfer programme targeted at the ultra-poor and labour-constrained households of the country. The main objectives of the programme are to alleviate poverty, hunger, and starvation in the targeted households, as well as improving health, nutrition, and education conditions of the children living in those households. This chapter describes how the SCTP began, including the social protection environment at the time of inception through today. Two major evaluations have been conducted on the programme: the Mchinji Pilot Evaluation (2007–8), and the Malawi SCTP Impact Evaluation (2013–16), which is currently underway. Evidence produced by these evaluations has been a key driver of operational and targeting improvements, and has contributed to subsequent surges in programme growth in the last three years.
