Covid-19: Novissi cash transfer scheme comes to an end

(Togo First) - last Friday by Mazalo Katanga, managing director of the national agency for grassroots development (ANADEB) during a press conference. 

“Novissi has ended but public policies are thinking of other ways to help populations,” Katanga said. The decision to halt the program follows the lifting of the curfew and lockdowns imposed to curb the spread of covid-19. 

Let’s note that the program was launched to help the poorest cope with the various steps taken by the government to contain the outbreak. In all, nearly 567,000 people - 65% of them women -  benefited from the Novissi initiative. In terms of investment, the program is estimated to have cost the State $19.5 million (more than XOF11 billion). 

The Novissi cash transfer scheme was launched in April for the three-month State emergency period declared by the government.
