AbstractThe study investigated the role played by the child support grant in alleviating poverty. The research approach used in this study was qualitative with a phenomenological research design. Purposive sampling was used to select six unemployed single women who relied only on a grant to make their living. Data was collected through individual interviews and analyzed in a form of a thematic approach. The study found that child support grants played a very important role in providing basic needs for many families. Some families were found to rely solely on the grant to make living. The study concluded that a child support grant does not completely remove poverty. The study recommends that government should do a needs analysis of each family to meet the basic needs of each family. Furthermore, the study recommends that families that only depend on the grant should be given more to meet their basic needs.
