Child Frontiers in Kenya

2019 : [ UNICEF ESARO ] : Research and Documentation of Child Protection programs in East and Southern Africa

Child Frontiers is undertaking a multi-country analysis and review for UNICEF Eastern and Southern Africa Regional Office (ESARO) that will provide an overview of the progress made against the implementation of the Global Programs to end child marriage and FGM and the work UNICEF ESARO is doing to address violence against children (VAC), adolescent participation, and country offices’ initiatives to strengthen risk informed programming on VAC in an integrated manner. The review will identify promising programs and interventions; identify lessons learned, gaps and challenges; and make recommendations for the strengthening of efforts. Child Frontiers will produce a series of thought pieces, literature reviews and briefs and a compendium of promising practices related to work being undertaken in Eritrea, Ethiopia, Kenya, Mozambique, Zambia, Somalia, Uganda, Namibia, Lesotho, Madagascar, South Africa, Zimbabwe and Tanzania. A key objective is to increase knowledge management through data analysis and documentation of the implementation of the Eastern and Southern Africa Region (ESAR) Child Protection Program.

2019: [ UNICEF Kenya ] : Evaluation of Child Protection Centres

Child Frontiers is conducting a formative evaluation of Child Protection Centres (CPC) to prevention of and response to violence, abuse and exploitation of children in Kenya. A CPC is a community resource centre that offers comprehensive child prevention and response services for children and their families who are in need of care and protection at the county level. This evaluation will cover one-stop service points piloted in four counties (Malindi, Garissa, Mombasa and Nairobi); and aims at identifying the strengths and weaknesses as well as gaps of the model including its community outreach component when it comes to preventing and responding to violence against children. The evaluation will be based on standard DAC criteria, which is being done to inform the UNICEF implementation of the new Country Program Document (CPD); and it will feed into the 2019 mid-year review and the 2020 CPD mid-term review. It is expected that the evaluation outcome will be a set of forward-looking conclusions and actionable recommendations for strengthening the government-led child protection service provision as well as the community-based outreach of the CPCs as an integral part of child protection systems in Kenya.

2015 : [ ECPAT ] : African Study on the Sexual Exploitation of Children in Travel and Tourism

Child Frontiers was contracted to assist in a 5 country study (Ghana, Zambia, Ethiopia, South Africa & Kenya) by ECPAT International to analyse qualitative and quantitative information on the sexual exploitation of children in travel and tourism in Africa. ECPAT and its African partners conducted research to study this phenomenon, raise awareness and mobilize action from governments, the tourism industry and civil society organizations to stop sexual exploitation of children in travel and tourism. Child Frontiers developed research tools including structured interviews, provided technical assistance to ensure the research adhered to the highest ethical standards, synthesized secondary research materials and developed a regional report for the African Reference Group and ECPAT International that was included in the Global Study on the Sexual Exploitation of Children in Travel and Tourism.

2013 : [ Save the Children UK ] : Impact Evaluation of Dadaab Child Protection Program

Child Frontiers conducted an impact evaluation of Save the Children UK's child protection related activities (5 year programme) in refugee camps in Dadaab, Kenya by developing the evaluation methodology, designing and field testing the data collection instruments, training local researchers, collecting and analysing data and presenting findings to the Country Office and other stakeholders for review and action planning based on recommendations (which informed the new 5 year strategy).
