East Africa Regional Cash Working Group

The Cash Learning Partnership (CaLP) co-leads the East Africa Regional Cash and Voucher Working Group (RCVWG) based in Nairobi, Kenya. The East Africa RCVWG is a dedicated platform which is designed to share information, provide peer technical support, coordinate and foster learning about cash and voucher transfer programming in the region. The RCVWG involves humanitarian stakeholders, donors, and private sector actors.

The CaLP East Africa Regional Representative, Karen Peachey, chairs the RCVWG and liaises with in-country Cash Working Groups (CWGs) in the region.

CaLP East Africa Members Consultative Discussion

A round table consultative meeting was held on the 27th of February at the ACTED offices in Nairobi. The meeting was arranged to bring together some of CaLP's members in East Africa for a 'roundtable' discussion to consider regional CTP (Cash Transfer Programming) priorities. The aim was to start to shape an agenda on which we can work together and which will inform CaLP's plans in EA on the coming year/s.
