Cash Transfers in Benin: A Response to Child Trafficking

The World Bank

This feature story from the World Bank describes a pilot social safety net program in Benin, financed by the World Bank, that is helping to reduce child trafficking to Nigeria. The program was piloted in Za-Kpota, one of the 77 communes in Benin, and "roughly 13,000 Beninese households in 125 villages have benefited from this program that aims to combat extreme poverty."
