dc.description This policy brief is based on Kabubo-Mariara J. and Kiriti-Ng’ang’a T. (2013) The Impact of Social Protection on the Welfare of Vulnerable Communities in East Africa: A Case Study from Kenya. Project report presented to IDRC, Nairobi, 2013 en
dc.description.abstract Child development has a strong implication for future human capital development and overall long-term development. Children also constitute the most vulnerable section of the population with regard to poverty and other forms of social exclusion, yet national policies often do not adequately cater for their needs. Orphaned children often fall into destitution due to lack of appropriate social protection interventions to cover them. It is imperative, therefore, to understand how targeted social protection programmes impact on orphaned and vulnerable children. en
