    3. 3. Situation Analysis• Taita Taveta county is situated in the south-western part of Coast Province, Kenya and has a population of 284, 657 (KNBS, 2009).• The main livelihoods are mixed farming (including livestock, dairy and crop production), casual waged labour and formal employment (Dienya et al., 2012).• In 2011, a Long Rains Season Assessment conducted by the Kenyan Government’s Food Security Steering Group classified most areas of Taita Taveta as having deteriorated from the ‘Stressed Phase’, to the ‘Crisis Phase’, in which households experience significant food consumption gaps with acute malnutrition. infoasaid for World Vision Voi project – September 2012
    4. 4. Situation Analysis• At the time the pilot project was being designed, there were 119,000 people (42% of the entire population of Taita Taveta) receiving food assistance under the Kenya Protracted Relief and Rehabilitation Operation (PRRO) sponsored by the World Food Programme and implemented by World Vision Kenya.• The goal of the PRRO was to improve community resilience to the adverse effects of drought on local livelihoods, and it was implemented in three modes: General Food Distribution (GFD), Food for Assets (FFA), and Cash for Assets (CFA). infoasaid for World Vision Voi project – September 2012

    6. 6. Communication Challenges• Slow, labour-intensive mechanisms for disseminating information to communities resulting in frequent delays in mobilising communities for food distributions;• Limited community engagement focused more on extracting information on project outputs rather than listening to communities’ needs and concerns;• Lack of a mass communication platform to explain changes made to the cash-for-asset program.• Insufficient mechanisms for soliciting feedback from recipient communities on the delivery of PRRO services. infoasaid for World Vision Voi project – September 2012
    7. 7. Communication Challenges• Lack of access among communities to practical information to help them improve their food security and livelihoods.• According to WVK Senior Management, although WVK had in place a number of feedback mechanisms - including a telephone hotline, community helpdesks and suggestion boxes - these were underutilised by communities. infoasaid for World Vision Voi project – September 2012
    8. 8. Proposed Project• Overall goal is to improve the quality (relevance/appropriateness, coverage, efficiency and effectiveness) of the WVK PRRO in Taita-Taveta, Kenya.• Two objectives: 1. Improve communication as a form of aid. 2. Improve communication as a means of improving the delivery of WVK’s food and cash assistance. infoasaid for World Vision Voi project – September 2012
    9. 9. Proposed Project• Two interventions: 1. A weekly interactive radio programme on Anguo FM targeting women aged 15 – 40. 2. The use of mobile telephony, coupled with FrontlineSMS software, to improve the effectiveness of two-way communication between World Vision and beneficiaries of food aid as well as to electronically gather data from the field. infoasaid for World Vision Voi project – September 2012
    10. 10. Proposed Project• Seven activities: 1. Sponsorship of a weekly interactive radio programme on Anguo FM. 2. Establishment of a FrontlineSMS information hub in the WVK Voi field office. 3. Use of FrontlineForms to collect data from PRRO Relief Committee (RC) focal points on programme outputs. 4. Distribution of java-enabled Nokia C1-01 mobile phones and Tough Stuff 1.5 watt solar charger kits to RC focal points in the 75 Food Distribution Points (FDPs) receiving either FFA, CFA or both. 5. Training for WVK staff and other stakeholders on communication with crisis-affected populations. 6. Appointment of a Local Communication Officer. 7. Capture of learnings from pilot project.

    14. 14. Expected Outcomes• The crisis-affected population of Taita Taveta, especially women, have increased access to practical information which will help them to improve their food security and livelihoods.• World Visions humanitarian assistance (PRRO) is more in line with and responsive to the needs and priorities of the crisis-affected population in Taita Taveta.• Improved timeliness and efficiency of the collection of data on programme outputs by World Vision from Project Committees. infoasaid for World Vision Voi project – September 2012
