The Government of Kenya (GoK) has over time implemented numerous social protection interventions aimed at improving the livelihood of its citizens. Despite these efforts, a substantial population remains exposed to poverty owing to various vulnerabilities. Evidence shows that the poor cannot cope with economic, social, natural and covariate shocks without consistent support. In this regard, the Government is implementing cash transfer programmes targeting poor and vulnerable groups.
These are interventions being implemented towards attainment of the Sustainable Development Goals 1 and 2 of “End poverty in all its forms everywhere” and “Ensure Healthy Lives and Promote Well-being for all at all Ages.”
