Mid Term Evaluation of the Solar Energy for Rural Kenya Project (WE!Hubs)

The project was initiated to provide affordable and environmental friendly off grid energy, clean water for consumption and access to the internet through solar operated cyber cafe in the rural areas.

The purpose of the survey was to advise Light for Life Ltd and the EU on the lessons learnt and to make recommendations for future implementation of the project.The midterm evaluation for Water-Energy Hub (WE!Hub) Project assessed mainly the progress made by the project towards fulfilling outcomes and objectives, as stipulated in the project log frame and in the description of actions. In addition, the evaluation re-assessed the strategic objectives and implementation mechanisms proposed during the design of the project, and the extent to which these have been effective in delivering results.We provided recommendations for any required change/modification to project scope (including objectives, management arrangements, financing, etc.) in order to support effective implementation and the attainment of the expected results by the end of the project.The study was conducted in eight locations - Ragwe, Sori, HongeMbita, Sindo and Nyandiwa in South Nyanza, James Finlay in Kericho and MukuruKwaNjenga in Nairobi.
