CASH FOR WORK BENEFITS ABOUT FIFTY THOUSAND HOUSEHOLDS

Maseru, May 17 — About 49,500 households in Maseru district will benefit from the six months community based cash for work project which is an intervention to the prevailing food insecurity in the country.

This, the District Disaster Manager (DDM) Mrs. ‘Mamonaheng Monoto  disclosed during the District Disaster Management Team (DDMT) meeting on Friday whose aim was to develop an action plan for targeting and identification of ultra-poor households as well as operation sites for the project.

She said that this number of households will be drawn from the 22 constituencies within the Maseru district with a coverage of 264 sites. She explained that each constituency will have 12 sites to work on with 187 people per site during the period of six months.

She said that they will engage relevant entities in selecting and identifying sites while targeting will be based on vulnerability assessment of the people using the NISSA database. She added that the DDMT will then have to verify the households using the Disaster Management Authority (DMA) tool to ensure that such people on the National Information System for Social Assistance (NISSA) database are really vulnerable.
