We at KENPRO offer consultancy and training on project planning and implementation to the members of Non-Governmental Organizations, Community Based Organizations, Faith Based Organizations, Self-help groups, youth groups, women groups among others.
In project planning and implementation, KENPRO makes use of Logical Framework Approach as a planning, implementation and monitoring tool.
Logical Framework describes in an operational way in matrix form the most important aspects of an operation, provides a way of checking whether the operation has been well designed and facilitates improved monitoring and evaluation. Table 1 illustrates the Logical Framework Format
Table 1: Logical Framework Format
Key components in the development of the Logical Framework
Goal: The objective goal specifies the benefits, which the beneficiaries will enjoy as a result of the project. The Development Goal is often related to the problem/need which the project is seeking to address, and is seen as the longer term desired solution or change.
Purpose: The purpose expresses the action that the target group will take in order to bring about the desired change. The Project Purpose often describes a change in the target group’s behaviour, resulting from its use of the services or products provided by the project.
Outputs (results): These are the goods/services/products, which the project makes available to the target group are described. These are the responsibility of the project.
Activities: They are all the steps, which the project takes to provide the various goods, services and products-or outputs are listed.
Input: This include physical, non-physical inputs that facilitate implementation of a project. They also include human resources and virtual aspects such as opportunity, demand and access etc
Project implementation matrix streams from the logical framework. It includes planned activities, actors and time-line of the set activities.

Project planning and implementation are key components in a project cycle. Without proper planning, project implementation may not be realized.
