 Cash transfer programming refers to the practice wherein cash or vouchers are directly handed to participants of certain programs. This approach is based on linkages, capacities, relationships and incentives to encourage effective market recovery.

Cash provisions and transfers empower affected individuals to decide on ways and means to meet their requirements by effectively using available local resources. While cash transfers are direct transfers of money to eligible persons, vouchers are redeemable against goods or services.

This IRES training course will empower you with detailed information and knowledge about cash transfer programming. By undertaking this course, you would be able to not only comprehend such transactions but also take important decisions that would work in favour of your organisation and the concerned individuals.
