CEDI continues to deliver on its promise of teaching Financial Capability Skills to over 4,000 children in Kenya.On 26th Mar 2021, the Kenyan Government issued a fresh directive to close all learning institutions indefinitely, alongside a raft of other measures to contain the third wave of covid19. Classroom learning, which only resumed in January 2021 after schools were closed for most of 2020, remain suspended again. A similar directive was issued a year ago, disrupting the learning of over 18Million learners countrywide. Most able institutions have had to embrace out of classroom learning through digital platforms, TVs and Radio. While such learning may take place in major urban areas and with well-off schools, for children in remote and resource-strained contexts, learning remains a challenge. This is due to poor network connectivity, internet costs, lack of access to smartphones and electricity.
My Money program therefore had to adapt and engage key stakeholders to ensure that children continue to access quality and basic learning at home. The teachers promoted the recorded lessons to children through links and WhatsApp of parents. Videos were downloaded and disseminated to children. Similarly, the learning materials issued to the schools were effectively used during the period to undertake lessons in community spaces within the community.
Picking up on the formative evaluation, the project launched the formative evaluation report in Kisumu and Migori on 12th and 13th of June 2021. The workshop for the Formative Evaluation Report Dissemination was attended by the 4Headteachers, Parents representatives, local clergies, representatives from children departments and ministry of education, at national and county level. Also in attendance were teachers, who have been spearheading the program in their respective schools.
The project’s main activity for this year was conducting a formative assessment to the project. The assessment aimed at understanding the lessons, impact and successes of the project since its inception in 2016. The project therefore had two consultative planning meetings with the 4 Headteachers and My Money coordinators within the first quarter of the year. A consultant to undertake the exercise has already been outsourced, and the exercise was planned for the week of Feb 22, 2021 till the 26th Feb 2021, in all the 4partner schools. The report was disseminated to the stakeholders present, to get their views and comments, before a report validation process.
From the workshop, the following were some of the notable feedback and comments:
Moving forward, the meeting participants agreed on two weeks turn around period to study the report and share thoughts and comments on the same. The comments and feedback shall be incorporated into the final version of the report, which shall be validated by all stakeholders, at a date that shall be determined.
