Kenya: Help More Kids, Charities Told

Orphans and vulnerable children organisations in Narok have been urged to harmonise their programmes. Alphia Plus programme manager Wycliffe Kokonya yesterday said each organisation should map its areas to enable them reach more children.

Speaking during a stakeholders meeting in Narok town, Kokonya said the Area Advisory Committees should be strengthened to ensure only children who are in need of help benefit from the programmes.

"It is important for the committees to identify the children who need help at the grass root level," said Kokonya. Narok children coordinator Fred Simi said some beneficiaries get double funding at the expense of others.
