This briefing paper summarises findings from three quantitative surveys undertaken at the start of the programme (baseline); one year (12 months) after the start of programme, and three years (36 months) after the start of the programme (i.e. 18 months since participants last received consumption/income support).
Data analysis has shown that the positive trajectory of results seen during the consumption/income support phase, as well as relative difference between participants and comparison households, has largely been sustained.
Data highlights the positive impact of the graduation programme on human and social indicators, as well as income- and asset- based indicators and shows that the impacts of the graduation programme can be sustained over time.
