Department for International Development

To improve the efficiency in delivery of basic services to refugees and to strengthen their resilience and that of the communities hosting them. This will be achieved through targeted as opposed to blanket assistance, and greater use of cash-based assistance instead of in-kind donations enabling refugees to be more self-reliant in Kenya. This programme will assist 140,000 adolescent girls and women and malnourished children through nutritional interventions each year as well as ensuring that the survivors of sexual and gender based violence (SGBV) receive appropriate medical care in a timely manner. The project will also assist 33,750 refugees with gender-appropriate, climate-smart economic development/livelihoods opportunities and will help up to 10,000 refugees to be voluntarily return to their countries of origin.
