By Nkateko Chauke of Studies and Poverty and Inequality Institute (SPII)
On November 11, The Social Protection advertising supplement in the Mail & Guardian published country studies about cash transfers.

The Southern African Development Community (SADC) Basic Income Grant (BIG) Campaign is a coalition of organisations that share a common vision to eradicate poverty and reduce inequality in the region through promoting the roll-out of a SADC-wide basic income grant as a form of social protection.
