Cash transfers, conditions, school enrollment, and child work: evidence from a randomized experiment in Ecuador

One of the mechanisms employed for overcoming the gap between provision and uptake is conditional transfers. Imagine a poor family with several school-aged children (there is a potential demand for education), living right across the street from a public school, but not enrolled. Put simply, there is no supply-side limitation (the school exists, including teachers, textbooks etc.) and the (potential) demand exists as well, but they are not coming together.
