ASAL Humanitarian Network MPCT New Beneficiaries Baseline Assessment, Turkana County (January 2022)



The ASAL Humanitarian Network's (AHN) humanitarian assistance programme provides three rounds of multipurpose cash transfers (MPCTs) to vulnerable populations in drought-affected counties in Kenya. This assessment looks at a supplementary set of beneficiaries households in Turkana county added to the main lot of beneficiary households under the AHN's main programme.

This response in Turkana county is primarily funded by Oxfam1 and consists of one implementing local partner non-governmental organisation (NGO): SAPCONE. The AHN will be distributing three rounds of MPCTs between December 2021 and March 2022, to selected beneficiary households across Turkana county in Kenya.

To monitor the ongoing impact of the MPCTs on the beneficiary population, IMPACT Initiatives provides impartial third-party monitoring and evaluation. IMPACT conducted a baseline assessment prior to the first round of transfers, which will be followed by a midline assessment after the first round, and an endline assessment after the second & last round of transfers. This factsheet presents key findings from the baseline assessment in Turkana county.
