This involves a rigorous process of desk and field based identification to ensure the selection of the most deserving participant.
Participatory Rural Appraisal
- Rapport building: Our staff visits a spot to explore the poverty status of the people living in the area, and invites community members to a scheduled PRA the next day.
- Participant identification: The PRA team completes a ‘social mapping’ activity with the participation of invited community members. This establishes the locations and completes the ‘wealth ranking’ of all included households, categorising families into five to six groups based on their economic means.
- Verification: The lowest three wealth groups identified in each spot are chosen for questionnaire surveys and final round of selection.
