Monitoring the Outcomes of Orphans and Vulnerable Children Programs in Kenya: Findings from a 2018 Survey of Recently Enrolled Beneficiaries: MWENDO Project Abstract:

This report presents findings from a cross-sectional study of beneficiary households receiving services from Making Well-Informed Efforts to Nurture Disadvantaged Orphans & Vulnerable Children (MWENDO) in western Kenya, in areas not served by the AIDS, Population and Health Integrated Assistance Plus Program, Western Kenya, known as APHIAplus, in 2016. MWENDO is a five-year project funded by the United States Agency for International Development (USAID) and implemented by Catholic Relief Services that provides an umbrella of services to orphans and vulnerable children (OVC). Beneficiaries included in this study started receiving services from MWENDO in the past two years, and were not among the households that participated in a similar survey Round 1 conducted in 2016.

This study was undertaken by MEASURE Evaluation—a project funded by USAID and the United States President’s Emergency Plan for AIDS Relief (PEPFAR)—at the request of PEPFAR and the USAID Kenya mission. This 2018 cross-sectional study was designed to meet PEPFAR’s reporting requirements, which involves the collection of data for nine PEPFAR monitoring, evaluation and reporting OVC essential survey indicators. Two additional indicators were included. This was a cross-sectional study of 99 beneficiary households, randomly selected from a list of beneficiary households in the study areas.

Although the survey was not designed to assess the effectiveness of the MWENDO OVC project, it is useful for identifying potential needs and program gaps. It complements a panel study of MWENDO OVC beneficiaries, available here.
