Child Vulnerability and Social Protection in Kenya

Kenya’s Social Protection Secretariat has highlighted new evidence showing the need for a universal child grant for Kenyan children. The evidence in Child Vulnerability and Social Protection in Kenya highlights that targeting social protection at orphans, 7.5% of Kenya’s children, with a Cash Transfer for Orphans and Vulnerable Children inadvertently leads to the exclusion of other children who are equally or even more vulnerable. Development Pathways produced the report following extensive statistical analysis and microsimulations under the direction of WFP Kenya, UNICEF Kenya and the National Social Protection Secretariat.
