June 2022

Consistent with the first half of the year, the implementation rate in the month of June was quite low. Most of partners have finalized beneficiary registration, so while not many achievements were done in terms of households reached, the number of planned households to be targeted increased. It is hoped that implementation rates in the month of July will increase.
