ABSTRACT

Income generating activities are crucial for promoting initiative, responsibility and self-sustenance. Despite all the proper structure in place such as good leadership, training, financial management and monitoring and evaluation it is quite worrying that youth with disabilities projects are still collapsing thereby not achieving their intended objectives. The aim of the study was to assess the influence of post-implementation management practices on sustainability of income generating projects among youth groups living with disability in Nakuru County. Thestudy also sought to assess the effect of education and training, market accessibility, monitoring and evaluation on sustainability of income generating projects among youth groups living with disability in Nakuru County. The research study used descriptive research design. The target population of the study comprised of 83 youth members from 3 groups of youth living with disabilities in Nakuru town. The study also targeted 7 officials with administrative duties from PWD offices in Nakuru County Headquarters. The three youth groups formed 3 stratum while the officials from PWD office formed one strata. The study used 60% to get a sample size from each of the strata. The sample size of this study therefore was 54 respondents. The study used primary data. Open ended questions permitted free responses from the respondents, without providing or suggesting any structure for the replies. Closed ended questions enabled the researcher to analyse data easily using the stated alternatives. The researcher visited the self-help groups and collected data by administering the questionnaires and interviews. Content validity was used in this study. This is a measure of the degree to which data collected using a particular instrument represents a specific domain or content of a particular concept. The questionnaire's reliability was statistically measured by measuring the internal consistency. In turn, internal consistency was measured by use of Cronbach‟s Alpha. The data that was collected in this study was both qualitative and quantitative in nature. Qualitative data was analysed by use of content analysis presented in a prose form. On the other hand, Quantitative data was analysed by use of Statistical Package for Social Sciences (SPSS) version 21. In addition, descriptive and inferential statistics was used in this study. Descriptive statistics such as percentages, frequencies, measures of central tendencies (mean) and measures of dispersion (standard deviation and co-efficient of variation) was used to describe the characteristics of the target population. Data was then presented in graphs and tables. Further, a multiple regression analysis was used to establish the relationship between the dependent and the independent variables.From the findings the researcher concluded that for income generating activities to perform well, one needs a good education, group members should also receive good training on business.Training plays a very important role in addressing confusion, confidence and commitment to issues found within income generating projects, which affect members and managers. For the training to yield the required commitment and awareness from participants, it must address specific needs of projects and that quality training increases commitment to project objectives and awareness of individual participant‟s and therefore all team members should receive detailed training on process and procedures relevant to their own work
