Workshop Stakeholder Report

In advance of the Graduation Workshop a stakeholder consultation process has been conducted to gather perspectives from selected stakeholders invited to the Graduation Workshop capable of giving a set of broad and strategic perspectives. This included GoK officials within ministries and at county government levels, a range of development partner working on topics that relate to graduation from poverty, several NGOs and research institutes.

The aim of interviews was to better understand graduation related programming, explore perspectives for what graduation at scale in Kenya could mean, and what the key pillars of a national graduation approach could be, and lastly to consider priorities for the Workshop agenda.
