More than just cash: an innovative child grant in Papua province
Development Pathways (03.03.2021) Given the need to address child development issues and to improve the coverage of social protection programmes across Papua, the Provincial Government of Papua (PGP) responded by launching BANGGA Papua, a child grant for all indigenous Papuan children from birth until their 4th birthday. BANGGA Papua has reached over 32,000 children (and 23,000 mothers) through a benefit level of 200,000 IDR (~13.50 USD) per child per month, and has helped the PGP to realise their commitment of achieving a “Generasi Emas,” or a golden generation of Papuans.
