According to bank documents, the project objective is to establish the key building blocks for a basic national safety net system and to provide income support to extremely poor households in Sierra Leone.
The proposed second Additional Financing (AF) aims to expand the coverage of the Social Safety Net (SSN) Project to provide income support to extreme poor households in all 16 districts of Sierra Leone, thus providing national coverage to the SSN program, and further strengthening the key building blocks of the country’s basic national safety net system. The targeting system will be modified to better ensure the inclusion of extremely poor households with members who are disabled. The provision of behavioral change workshops will be enhanced to better contribute towards building human capital and sub-component is added to finance the expansion of cash transfers to households affected by shocks.
