New Incentives is the world’s first and only nonprofit dedicated to Conditional Cash Transfers (CCTs).
Conditional Cash Transfers (CCTs) are small sums of money that individuals in need can earn after meeting various education and health benchmarks such as school attendance or clinic visits. In the case of New Incentives, your donation gives poor mothers in rural West Africa small stipends on the condition that they vaccinate their children against deadly diseases. The stipends allow the women to afford transport to the clinic where the vaccinations are provided and food for their families. 1.5 million children under five lose their lives to vaccine-preventable diseases each year. The New Incentives program protects infants against these risks. The cash stipends also strengthen the position of the mother and newborn in a family setting. Their health is no longer seen as a luxury but a smart investment.
