    In 2014, the Corporation for National and Community Service (CNCS) selected AARP Foundation to receive a three-year grant under the Social Innovation Fund (SIF) to operate and evaluate the Women’s Economic Stability Initiative (WESI) in multiple locations. Using this funding, AARP Foundation seeks to build the capacity of local education and training institutions to address the needs of older women workers between 50 and 64 years of age with incomes between 130 percent and 200 percent of poverty level by helping them prepare for employment in high growth sectors in their local economies.

    AARP Foundation awarded Social Policy Research Associates (SPR) a contract to evaluate the overall effectiveness of the BTW50+: WESI program and identify lessons from its implementation that might inform future programming. The evaluation includes an implementation study, an outcomes study, and an impact study.

    Year: 2007

    This report summarizes the findings of an evaluation of a social safety net initiative, the Programme of Advancement Through Health and Education (PATH), which was undertaken by the Government of Jamaica, beginning in 2001. The main objectives of the initiative, which is operated by the Ministry of Labour and Social Security (MLSS), are to achieve better targeting of welfare benefits to the poor and to increase human capital by conditioning receipt of the benefits on participants meeting certain requirements for school attendance and health care visits.

    Under the programme, PATH eligibility is determined using a scoring formula which draws on detailed information about household circumstances. Benefits to eligible households are disbursed through the postal system. The conditioning requirements to increase human capital are enforced, based on information which is obtained through schools and health care centres. (author abstract)
