For every child, [Protection ]
Following the pilot phase and subsequent evaluation, TASAF and UNICEF intend to scale up  Stawisha Maisha sessions to cover all PAAs during PSSN Phase II to complement community sessions during payment days, in a bid to optimize the role of PSSN cash transfers in improving children’s nutrition status. 

How can you make a difference?
Specific tasks
1. Develop Stawisha Maisha II programme document and budget for three years (2021 – 2024) that will be mainstreamed in PSSN II by:

  • Exploring new methodology and technological mechanisms for the delivery of integrated Stawisha Maisha sessions such as using programs broadcast through community radios in localities (Ongea project) or mobile phone messaging and voice activated sessions.
  • Explore possibility to include head of households (men) in attending Stawisha Maisha Sessions to equip them with nutrition knowledge that can facilitate informed decision making regarding infants and young children’s feeding practices.
  • Assess the existing PSSN II groups e.g. Saving groups and examine the potential of linkage (for cost effective and mainstreaming).
2.  Develop Stawisha Maisha training materials, guidelines and standardized technical tools including pre-testing in the field and provide technical support on the first roll out of the implementation (implementation guide, training on IYCF and guidelines for ECD father’s (men) engagement for children for optimal development, training materials, visual aids).
3. Develop a proposal to integrate SM Stawisha Maisha monitoring indicators into the existing PSSN II M&E framework
4. Develop a TASAF - PSSN integrated SBCC action plan taking into account ongoing initiatives such as Ideas42
5. Develop a reporting mechanism on nutrition and ECD services implemented by services providers to PSSN II beneficiaries
