About New Incentives

New Incentives is the world’s first and only nonprofit dedicated to Conditional Cash Transfers.

Conditional Cash Transfers (CCTs) are small sums of money that individuals in need can earn after meeting various education and health benchmarks such as school attendance or clinic visits. In the case of New Incentives, your donation gives poor mothers in rural West Africa small stipends on the condition that they vaccinate their children against deadly diseases. The stipends allow the women to afford transport to the clinic where the vaccinations are provided and food for their families. 1.5 million children under five lose their lives to vaccine-preventable diseases each year. The New Incentives program protects infants against these risks. The cash stipends also strengthen the position of the mother and newborn in a family setting. Their health is no longer seen as a luxury but a smart investment.

New Incentives Misssion

New Incentives encourages poor mothers in rural West Africa to vaccinate their infants against deadly diseases. Often poor mothers cannot afford the transport to clinics and the associated loss in earnings from small-scale trading or farming. This is why they provide cash transfers to mothers that vaccinate their children on five occasions during the first year after delivery. The transfers allow mothers to cover transport and buy some food for their families. A disbursement only takes place if the condition is met the child got the latest vaccinations during one of the five immunization visits.
