Expression of Interest
Local Research Partner for Baseline Data Collection
Purpose: Kenya Integrated Water, Sanitation and Hygiene (KIWASH) is a United States Agency for International Development (USAID)-funded project.
Its primary goal is to improve lives and health of Kenyan citizens in nine counties through development and management of sustainable water, sanitation and hygiene services.
USAID has designed KIWASH to institutionalize catalytic models of sustainable WASH services delivery, improve hygiene behaviors and strengthen nutrition education while coordinating with other USAID programs to improve access to nutritious foods for highly vulnerable populations.
These combined efforts support the implementation of USAID’s Water and Development Strategy in Kenya.
DAI will apply our expertise in WASH, nutrition, and Feed the Future programming – as well as our extensive experience in Kenya – to ensure that urban and rural families in the Lake Victoria and Tana/Athi regions have increased access to clean water, appropriate sanitation facilities, and demonstrate improved hygiene and nutrition behaviors.
KIWASH seeks a research organization/firm to serve as our local partner for the purpose of conducting a baseline data collection and management of a Household baseline survey in Busia, Kakamega, Kisumu, Migori, Nyamira, Siaya, Kitui, Makueni and Nairobi.
