Kenya, McGovern Dole International Food for Education and Child Nutrition 2016-2020: Midline evaluation

This decentralized evaluation was commissioned by the WFP Kenya Country Office. This report summarizes the midline findings for Kenya’s WFP implemented School Meals Programme – a USD 28 million grant for a period of five years.

The programme is funded by the United States Department of Agriculture’s McGovern Dole International Food for Education and Child Nutrition Programme. The programme is implemented in eight counties namely: Baringo, Garissa, Mandera, Turkana, Wajir and West Pokot, Marsabit and Tana River.

This report compares the situation of the programme at midline (May 2018) against the baseline (in May 2017). The midline timing – one year after the baseline - is a requirement by the donor. The endline will take place in early 2020. At mid-line the purpose of the evaluation is to provide an independent assessment of: • The project’s relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, coherence and sustainability; • Performance against indicators in comparison with values at baseline; • Whether the project is on track to meet the results and targets • Necessary mid-course corrections and covered the Local and Regional Food Aid Procurement Programme (LRP).
