The Government of Kenya has been implementing numerous poverty reduction programmes aimed at improving the livelihoods of its citizen. Cash transfers (CTs) are among the responses designed to reach the poor and vulnerable. CTs are among several Social Protection interventions, including Cash Transfer Programmes.

Social Assistance Unit (SAU) was established in 2016 by MEACL&SP under the consolidation strategy to implement the Consolidated Cash Transfer Programmes also known as ‘Inua Jamii’. SAU is tasked with Coordination of the Harmonized activities and provides coordination for the Consolidated Cash Transfer programmes.

The Consolidated Cash Transfer Programmes coordinated by SAU are funded by GoK and supported by Development Partners including UNICEF, WFP, DFID and World Bank. The three consolidated programmes under SAU are:
• Older Persons Cash Transfer (OPCT)

• Cash Transfer for Orphan’s and Vulnerable Children (CT-OVC)

In total, currently 710,000 households are beneficiaries of the three Cash Transfers. The Consolidated Cash Transfer programme is one of the flagship projects under social pillar of Vision 2030.
