Abstract:This paper investigates the impact of social transfer programmes on school enrolment and child labour in Malawi utilizing a micro-simulation evaluation method. The author simulates four hypothetical scenarios in which a household receives: (1) MK (Malawian kwacha) 1,040 (US dollar 2.5) for each child enrolled in school regardless of the child's gender; (2) MK1,040 (US dollar 2.5) regardless of the child's enrolment status and gender; (3) MK1,040 (US dollar 2.5) and MK2,080 (US dollar 5) for each boy or girl enrolled in school, and (4) MK1,040 (US dollar 2.5) and MK2,080 (US dollar 5) for each boy or girl regardless of their enrolment status. Results show that boys' enrolment increases in all four scenarios, whereas girls' enrolment increases only when the conditionality on enrolment is enforced. Bibliogr., notes, sum. [Journal abstract]
