IIRR began operating in Kenya since 1995 and has chosen Education for Pastoralist’s and Marginalized Communities as its flagship Program, with interventions implemented in Marsabit, Samburu and Isiolo Counties in Northern Kenya.

Despite the significant investment in pastoralist’s children education in those, the gains are being eroded by effects of Sexual Gender Based Violence (SGBV), especially Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), Early Forced Marriage and Young Girls Beading.

Purpose of the Final Evaluation: The evaluation will assess levels of accomplishments to generate relevant findings, lessons learnt, best practices and recommendations to be used by IIRR (the implementing organization) and other relevant stakeholders to guide and inform future similar projects.
