Keeping track of all project-related metrics including team performance and task duration, identifying potential problems and taking corrective actions necessary to ensure that the project is within scope, on budget and meets the specified deadlines is key to the success of a project. These are the sentiments that informed the Water Research and Resource Center (WARREC) to carry out a household monitoring exercise on it BabyWASH Project one year down the line since the start of its implementation in Kajiado County.
This exercise was carried out on the 23rd – 26th April 2019 in the project sites of Lornguswa and Meto Locations of Kajiado County. It was aimed at tracking out the project progress to inform on any deviations so as to take corrective actions necessary to ensure that the project is implemented within scope, on budget and meets the specified deadlines. BabyWASH project is a collaborative project between Word Vision Kenya and Jomo Kenyatta University of Agriculture and Technology (JKUAT) through its Water Research and Resource Center (WARREC).
During this exercise, about 55 households were visited and discussion with key informants including leaders, Community Health volunteers (CHVs), Loans and Saving group members and health workers conducted. Information in this household monitoring exercise, JKUAT-WARREC was represented by Mr. Wycliffe Nyangau, Mr. Paul Kahiga and Mr. Reuben Munene.
