End poverty in a BIG way
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. From these country studies, one can immediately determine that social cash transfers are key to fighting poverty and reducing the inequality gap that continues to expand in Southern African countries.
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.
