Hi Shanta,

This is a great piece on cash transfers. Where I work, we give Gifts in Kind to beneficiaries and rightfully so, people often ask for cash instead. We have used our gifts in kind to incentivize participation in programs like immunizations, etc. which has proven somewhat successful, but of course, nothing substitutes cash. The worry we have and question I have for you is do you think cash transfers would create dependency?
