Effectiveness and sustainability assessment of HIV/AIDS awareness and preventive project of Free Pentecostal Fellowship in Kenya
The Free Pentecostal Fellowship in Kenya (FPFK) started an HIV/Aids Awareness and Preventive Project in the year 2000.Several activities have been held in three regions of the country namely the Nyanza, the Coast and Southern rift. The activities have been held both in schools, churches and community which include mass campaigns, sports, church seminars, community campaigns etc.In 2003, PYM asked FPFK to conduct an evaluation to assess the impact of the project in the various target areas. The evaluation was conducted in the beginning of 2004. The evaluation came up with some recommendations especially with a view to make the activities more effective in the event of approval of a phase II project by PYM. Following the findings of the evaluation of phase I project, PYM and BN recommended approval for funding of phase II proposal from FPFK for the period 2005 - 2009. Activities have now been running for two years. The phase II project with support from PYM commenced in 2005 during which PMU InterLife, (The Pentecostal Church in Sweden) also granted support to the expansion of the project to more areas. The support under PYM is expected to phase out in 2009 while that of PMU InterLife has approved additional support to a new 3 year phase that should specifically target the youth and which should begin in June 2007. Through this project, FPFK was able to conduct HIV/Aids activities to most of the 19 administrative regions countrywide.
