Small cash transfers from the UNDP's Urban Partnerships for Poverty Reducation programme have so far put more than three million people in urban areas on the path to a better future. Modeled on Brazil’s highly successful Bolsa Familia (family grants) scheme, it offers education stipends, apprenticeships, block grants and access to safe water and sanitation, with women holding 90 per cent of the office bearer posts.
