Is Government the Key to Scaling up Graduation Programs? Results From an Impact Evaluation in Latin America
Graduation programs fight poverty by offering participants the tools and resources they need to create a viable livelihood. But while these programs have shown impressive results, they're costly to bring to scale. Tatiana Rincón and Adriana Insaurralde at Fundación Capital explore whether the graduation approach can be rolled out by governments without compromising its impact, based on evidence from a ground-breaking impact assessment.
This post, the first in a series by Fundación Capital exploring the Graduation strategy as a way to pull people out of extreme poverty, looks at how the concept is evolving. With more governments investing in Graduation, and more technological tools being applied, Tatiana Rincon suggests that "we stand at the edge of change that could lead to a world without poverty."
