Mid-term Evaluation of the Kenya Integrated Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (KIWASH) Project: Summary of Findings and Recommendations


The Kenya Integrated Water, Sanitation and Hygiene program (KIWASH) is a $51 million 5-year project (October 2015 to September 2020) funded by USAID/Kenya and East Africa (USAID/KEA) and implemented by a consortium led by DAI. The goal of KIWASH is to improve lives and health through development and management of sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene (WASH) services in Kenya. Its purpose is to institutionalize catalytic models of sustainable service delivery for accelerated water and sanitation access in target counties and to improve complementary hygiene behaviors.

USAID/KEA commissioned the USAID Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene Partnerships and Learning for Sustainability (WASHPaLS) project to evaluate KIWASH performance over the first three years of implementation. The primary purposes of the evaluation were to: 1) assess the appropriateness of the KIWASH design, 2) assess progress of implementation to date, and 3) inform future USAID/KEA WASH and nutrition programming. This document offers a 21-page summary of the evaluation findings.
