    Inside Story Americas spoke with Richard Buery, president of the Children's Aid Society. They manage the Family Rewards programme in New York City and Memphis. Family Rewards is an experimental conditional cash transfer programme that uses private and public funds to help 1,100 families. The programme provides cash rewards for good school attendance, clinic visits and educational and professional milestones. Shihab Rattansi began by asking Richard Buery how Family Rewards was influenced by Mexico's Oportunidades programme.
