The Hunger Safety Nets Programme, Kenya – A Social Protection Case Study

2018 — By Jane Beesley

The Hunger Safety Nets Programme (HSNP) began in 2008 in the four poorest districts of northern Kenya (Turkana, Marsabit, Mandera and Wajir). The programme was designed to give long term support
through regular cash transfers, to those households most vulnerable to food insecurity.

The safety net programme is currently a pilot programme, funded and supported by the Department for International Development (DFID). The programme’s long-term sustainability is dependent on the Government of Kenya’s (GoK) financial and logistical support.
