The project provides emergency cash relief to vulnerable people in urban and peri-urban areas of Kenya suffering severe hardship as a result of COVID-19. This is based on work GiveDirectly launched early in 2020 (an inclusive, remote, emergency cash assistance response program where recipients were targeted through partnerships with trusted CBOs). The project provides each recipient with 3,000 KES (~£22) per month for four months. This transfer size was designed to enable recipients to avoid the worst economic consequences of COVID-19, while enabling the program to reach as many vulnerable households as possible.
