Black_spot
OVERVIEW

The ASAL Humanitarian Network’s (AHN) humanitarian assistance programme provides three rounds of multipurpose cash transfers (MPCTs) to vulnerable populations in drought-affected counties in Kenya. This assessment looks at a supplementary set of beneficiary households in Mandera county added to the main lot of beneficiary households under the AHN’s main programme.

This response in Mandera county is primarily funded by Oxfam and consists of two implementing local partner non-governmental organizations (NGOs): RACIDA and NAPAD . The AHN will be distributing three rounds of MPCTs between December 2021 and March 2022, to selected beneficiary households across Mandera county in Kenya. The households will also be supported beyond the programme until May 2022 under the European Civil Protection and Humanitarian Aid Operation (ECHO) drought response programme, which the Kenya Cash Consortium members will implement (ACTED, Concern, Oxfam, and AHN).

To monitor the ongoing impact of the MPCTs on the beneficiary population, IMPACT Initiatives provides impartial third-party monitoring and evaluation. IMPACT conducted a baseline assessment before the first round of transfers, followed by a midline assessment after the first round, and an end-line assessment will follow after the second & last round of transfers. This factsheet presents key findings from the midline assessment in Mandera county as well as a comparison of some key indicators from the baseline assessment. The figures in grey highlight the magnitude of change from the baseline to the midline for relevant indicators.
