South Africa: Child poverty in South Africa - Springing the traps

In the two decades since South Africa’s transition to democracy, the country has experienced considerable success in reducing poverty, as measured in terms not just of money but also of multidimensional forms of deprivation such as lack of access to water and sanitation. One of the main instruments for reducing poverty over that period has been the Child Support Grant, first introduced in 1998, a cash payment to households from which more than 11 million children were benefiting by 2011.
