In 2012, COL commissioned a survey on the outcome of the L3F Initiative implemented by KAIPPG in Mumias and Busia regions of Kenya, UCRC in Siaya district, Kenya as well as Makerere University in Kabale district of Uganda. This paper presents the key highlights of the results of the evaluation survey of the L3F initiative implemented in Kenya and Uganda.
