The aim of the study was to evaluate the effect of monitoring and evaluation in stakeholder participation on the extent of accountability of Umande Trust projects. The target population of the study included all the 240 staff in the 20 Bio-center projects in Kibera. A sample was drawn using stratified sampling where the projects were treated as strata.  A sample of 148 respondents was drawn from all strata/categories which represent 62% of target population. By use of systematic sampling every 2nd case in the population frame was selected for inclusion in the sample. The study mainly utilized primary data. The data was collected through administration of questionnaires. Questionnaires were standardized to ensure validity and reliability. The filled-in and returned questionnaires were edited for completeness, coded and entries made into Statistical package for social sciences (SPSS version 22). The data-set was then subjected to a verification process to verify if the captured data correlate with the data-capture into SPSS. Both descriptive and inferential statistics were used to analyze the data. Descriptive analysis was conducted on primary data. Mean and standard deviations were used as measures of central tendencies and dispersion respectively. Further, the research employed a multivariate regression model to study the relationship between primary and secondary stakeholders with accountability of Umande Trust projects. The study found that stakeholders come up with the ideas. There was agreement that Umande monitors Bio-centers management by  seeking opinion of women, village elders, youth and disabled, Umande continuously contacts men, women, youth and disabled in identifying construction sites for monitoring purposes, Umande contacts community committee that oversees collections for income generation activities in impact evaluation, Umande continuously contacts government and donors in negotiations for monitoring commitment terms and aid conditions, Umande seeks opinion of government, donors, civil society in construction of Bio-centers for monitoring and Umande seeks opinion of government officials for monitoring every stage of Bio-center project implementation.
