Abstract: Ghanas Livelihood Empowerment Against Poverty (LEAP) programme provides cash transfers to very poor people, particularly in households with orphans or vulnerable children, the elderly and people with extreme disabilities. Beneficiaries also receive free national health insurance. LEAPs objectives are to alleviate short-term poverty and to promote the development of human education, experience and abilities. The government-funded programme receives support from the World Bank and the UKs Department of International Development.(?)
