Spearheading Results for Children in Kenya

The country programme 2014-2018 aims to advance the rights of all children and adolescents in Kenya, especially the most vulnerable. The programme reflects three strategic shifts, based on learning from the previous programme cycle (2009-2013) and responding to national priorities.

  • First, it will strive to embed all children’s rights within the reformed governance systems.


  • Second, it will aim to model service delivery approaches reaching the most deprived and vulnerable children, with a focus on high-burden counties and low-income urban settlements, and will build capacity to scale up successful approaches.


  • Third, it will work to build the resilience of systems, communities and households in the face of recurrent crises.

Programmatic Outcomes

This country programme will reflect opportunities offered by the devolution process. UNICEF Kenya will support counties in child-focused planning, budgeting and monitoring strategies and analyzing outcomes.

In the same vein, capacity development of partners engaged in implementing the country programme will be critical at all levels, with a special emphasis on the newly devolved service delivery institutions.

Within the Delivering as One modality, the programme will forge close partnerships and support coordination among United Nations programmes to achieve the UNDAF outcome results. This collaboration will include shared advocacy, coordinated implementation and leveraging of resources.

There are four components of this country programme:

  • Inclusive Environment
  • Protective Environment
  • Healthy Environment
  • Learning Environment.
