Core Partnerships

The CRAM project has a number of core partners from different universities and government departments. Importantly, the study would not be possible without the formal support of The Department of Planning Monitoring and Evaluation (DPME) within the Presidency who have made the National Income Dynamics Study (NIDS) sampling frame available to the CRAM team.

The operational staff for CRAM come from the Research on Socioeconomic Policy (RESEP) group at Stellenbosch University, while the data collection and quality control processes have been run by the Southern Africa Labour and Development Research Unit (SALDRU) at UCT.

Funding Partners

The CRAM project is proudly funded by three  donors: The Allan & Gill Gray Philanthropy, FEM Education Foundation, and the Michael & Susan Dell Foundation.
