dc.description.abstractThere is low utilization of the progress reports from monitoring and evaluation system of the child protection projects at World Vision Kenya. More specifically, less than 10% of the M&E progress reports generated periodically is utilized by the stakeholders. About 40% of the progress reports at World Vision Kenya are not prepared within the established costs, creating cost overruns within the M&E function at World Vision Kenya. The available budgetary constraints, human resource limitations and technological challenges have comprised the quality and timeliness of the progress reports with regard to child protection projects at WVK. Thus, the present study related the need to allocate resources and how this may shape ability of M&E system of the child protection projects at WVK to perform. More specifically, the study examined human, financial, technological and material resource allocation in relation to M&E system ability to perform at WVK. The resource based view theory, resource dependence theory and technology acceptance model theory anchored this inquiry. A descriptive design was adopted targeting 9 child protection projects by World Vision Kenya as the unit of analysis and 220 staff from World Vision Kenya at its head quarter in Nairobi as the unit of observation. The sample size was 141 participants. Primary data was collected through questionnaire that was pilot tested among 10 respondents from Save-the-Children. Content and construct validity were adopted while Cronbach Alpha was used to establish reliability. The collected data was processed as aided by SPSS tool supported by descriptive frequencies and percentages) and inferential statistics (regression analysis). It was established that material resource allocation; financial resource allocation, technological resource allocation and human resource allocation were all practiced at World Vision Kenya and they significantly contributed towards performance of the M&E system of the child protection projects. The study concludes that resource allocation is a significant factor that enhances performance of M&E system in a project organization. The study recommends that the project managers of the child project projects at WVK should ensure that the M&E teams have relevant diversity in terms of gender and age to effectively dispense their duties. Donors of the child protection projects at WVK like EU should increasingly demand for accountability in utilization of the funds in conducting M&E activities. The ICT managers at WVK should deploy new state of the art tools and techniques in carrying out M&E activities. The procurement managers at WVK should come up with relevant policies and regulations governing procurement of materials needed for carrying out M&E activities. The results of this study will inform policies formulated by donors including the European Union with regard to utilization of financial resources to heighten accountability at World Vision Kenya.en_US
