Grant amount

Beneficiaries of the Senior Citizens Grants receive a monthly stipend of UGX 25,000-about US$8. This amount represents about 20 per cent of the monthly household consumption of the poorest of Uganda’s population. His sum is sensitive to what is affordable at national scale.

Evidence from the SAGE pilot and other countries shows that even such small payments, if made regularly and predictably, make a huge difference to the lives of poor and vulnerable individuals and families.
