The CLP provided an integrated package of support to 78,026 extreme poor core participant households. This support ended in February 2016. The Programme aimed for 85% of these households to ‘graduate.’
The Programme finalised a set of 10 graduation criteria and methodology to assess graduation during the first quarter of 2014. To graduate, a household had to meet (any) six or more criteria within 3 months of completing the 18 month cycle. These criteria relate to (1) Income/ expenditure/ consumption, (2) Nutrition, (3) Asset base, (4) Status of females, (5) Vulnerability, and (6) Access to services.
Panel sample surveys show that 89.7% of cohorts 2.1 to 2.6 have graduated. The Programme has therefore achieved its target in terms of graduation
