Going the Last Mile: Lifting ultra-poor households out of extreme poverty

By Anu Kumar • August 10, 2023 • 1 minute read

This is a playbook based on the largest government-led scale of the Graduation Approach in the world, Satat Jeevikoparjan Yojana (SJY). The programme is implemented and led by JEEViKA and is run in close collaboration with NGO Bandhan-Konnagar as the technical advisor and J-PAL South Asia as the knowledge and learning partner.

This knowledge product—which can serve as a playbook—is based on qualitative and quantitative research coupled with triangulation of programme tracking data done over five years. The insights gleaned from this extensive on-ground research have contributed significantly to developing, refining, and perfecting the innovative delivery of the Graduation Approach in Bihar.

You can read through the playbook and learn more about this work on their website.
