2. Nutrition (options include: support and accessibility to adequate nutrition for pregnant/lactating women, and/or persons living with disabilities, and/or elderly persons);
3. Health (options include: support for persons living with disabilities, and/or psychosocial support, including support to child soldiers); or
4. Livelihoods (options include: primary and/or vocational education/training only that ideally benefit both refugees and host nationals, and that for Somali refugees have a clear link to eventual voluntary return;).

Please note the following: there will be no separate call for GBV programs in Kenya for FY 2013.
