World Vision's Cash Based Programming in response to Nepal Earthquake

There is a growing recognition of Cash Based Programming as appropriate and effective tool to support affected populations in emergency and early recovery situations in a way that maintains dignity and choice while stimulating local economies.

The use of cash and vouchers to support food security and livelihoods, shelter, health, education and displacement situations has been evidenced to provide fast and effective support. Soon after the April and May earthquakes hit Nepal, World Vision used various methods of Cash Based Programming to implement several projects in the most affected areas in Dhading, Dolakha, Nuwakot, Sindhupalchowk and Gorkha districts of Nepal benefiting 68,273 families in need.
