Phase One Review of Targeting Methodologies for Hunger Safety Net Programme Career Opportunity in Kenya

The Hunger Safety Net Programme is a Government of Kenya-led project, funded by DFID, aiming at ‘establishing a government-led national social protection system delivering long-term, guaranteed cash transfers to extremely poor and vulnerable people’.
The Administration Component is headed by Oxfam GB, in partnership with CARE Kenya, Save the Children UK, ALDEF Kenya and WASDA. This Component is responsible for the targeting of the beneficiaries.
The three targeting methodologies include community based targeting; social pension (pure categorical old age based); and dependency ratio categorical.
Towards the end of the targeting period for phase one (60,000 beneficiaries in Mandera, Wajir, Turkana and Marsabit), the admin component wishes to engage a consultant to review the operational effectiveness of these methodologies and draw lessons. The review will look at the historical timeline of the project implementation period.
This will be an internal learning review for the admin components that will draw lessons for implementation of similar social protection programmes and complement the outcomes of the M&E review processes.
