The Strategy focusses on child learning and household resilience; water, sanitation and hygiene; child protection and participation; community engagement & sponsorship programming; disaster management and emergency response. This strategy has been developed in

alignment to World Vision’s Global Strategy (Our Promise Phase Two) that has five strategic imperatives that reinforces the choices made as a Partnership to serve the most vulnerable children. WVK affirms its commitments to ensure that the implementation of its FY21-25 Strategy demonstrates alignment to the WVI Strategic Imperatives.

Towards the execution of this Strategy, WVK will require US$301 million (over 30 Billion Kenya Shillings) for the full implementation of this Strategy for a period of five years. This calls for quality sponsorship programming; accessing private non sponsorship funding; sustained donor engagements and deliberate focus on private sector linkages; including national resource development to fund locally funded programmes. WVK has an average annual budget of US$75 million (cash & in kind drawn from sponsorship and grant funding) with a staff compliment of approximately 700. Its operational coverage spans across 39 of the 47 Counties in Kenya, where projects are implemented through its community based Area Programmes.
