Kenya: Nilinde: Support for Orphans and Vulnerable Girls and Boys in Nairobi and Coast Counties of Kenya

On this project, Plan International leads a consortium that also includes Ananda Marga Universal Relief Team (AMURT), Childline Kenya, and mothers2mothers (m2m). Known locally as Nilinde, the project works to support at-risk children in Kenya by focusing on improving the welfare and protection of the most vulnerable households affected by HIV in Nairobi and the Coast Counties of Mombasa, Kilifi, Kwale, Taita Teveta, and Lamu. Nilinde works with local partner organizations to increase household resiliency and empower parents and caregivers to make investments that will improve the health and well-being of orphans and vulnerable children (OVC). Working at both local and national levels, Nilinde aims to increase access to health and social services and support government efforts at strengthening child welfare and protection systems. Nilinde’s holistic case management approach connects health, nutrition, HIV services, psychosocial support, and education to economic strengthening services designed to graduate families out of program support by developing their ability to grow and sustain their assets, income, and skills. In Nairobi County, the project focuses on informal settlements where the majority of the OVC reside. In Coast Counties , the project works in both informal settlements in urban areas and in rural areas where larger OVC populations live. Nilinde also works with Kenyan government agencies to strengthen national monitoring and management information system (MIS) for OVC and integrates information and communications technologies (ICT) and social and behavior change communication (SBCC) across project interventions. At the same time, Nilinde works with governmental and non-governmental partners to use data for decision-making and improve quality services to OVC.
