Umodzi -using a gender synchronized approach to accelerate impact-midline

The Umodzi Project aims to test the effectiveness and scalability of a gender synchronized and transformational approach to accelerate and enhance the impact of integrated adolescent life skills and sexual reproductive health (SRH) programming. The Umodzi project relies on coordinating existing initiatives to achieve: 1) Adoption of gender-equitable attitudes and behaviours among adolescent boys and girls in primary school; 2) Improved health and development knowledge, attitudes, self-efficacy, and self-care practices among adolescent boys and girls in primary school; and, 3) Enhanced inter-generational relationships between men and boys and women and girls that are supportive of adolescent gender and SRHR. The Midterm Evaluation (MTE) of the project aimed to explore the effect of UMODZI gender conscious practice (GCP)) on gender conscious attitudes; and on further outcomes identified in coordination with the development of GCP curriculum and Theory of Change.

The Partners for Learning (P4L) project is implemented by CARE in collaboration with 20 partner organizations and 465 schools since November 2013. P4L’s goal is to identify, enroll, and retain 50,000 out-of-school girls and boys (OOSGB) in the Haitian education system. After three years of implementation, this midline evaluation was conducted to assess the prevalence of OOSGB in targeted areas, given contextual changes such as the destruction caused by Hurricane Matthew; analyze the contribution of P4L training activities on teaching practices; and assess the validity of P4L’s strategies.

The recommendations from the midline are:
- Increase mobilization efforts to identify and enroll OOSGB in areas of high out-of-school prevalence;
- Need to reinforce the project strategy to strengthen retention, as dropout remains a major issue in targeted areas;
- Mobilize other actors in the education sector (MENFP, NGOs through CEC, civil society associations, etc.) to design a national strategy to address retention issues;
- Promote VSLA in each area to support families to enroll and keep their children in school;
- Mobilize funds and create partnerships to improve infrastructure conditions in partner
schools. [39 pages]

Mid-Term Review: CARE Tanzania PkW Project

Given the level of poverty and financial exclusion in rural settings1 the informal savings groups will, for a foreseeable future, prevail as viable means to expand access to finance (savings and loans). It is a false assumption to expect formal and modern sector to penetrate such areas, some of which appear more in need of humanitarian aid than development interventions.

After so many years of donors support to the savings groups industry, this MTR exercise offers an opportunity to respond two overarching questions (i) whether interventions, such as PkW’s delivery mechanisms and activities are informed by knowledge that have accumulated overtime both in and outside the industry and; (ii) whether there are still knowledge gaps that the Project could fill.

Mid-term Evaluation: MicroLead Expansion Programme

In September 2011, UNCDF, in partnership with The MasterCard Foundation (MCF) launched a six-year expansion of the MicroLead programme that aimed to increase access to savings driven microfinance to a minimum 450,000 low income individuals in Sub-Saharan Africa (SSA), half of whom are women and half of whom reside in rural areas. The programme’s intention was to attract experienced institutions or networks from developed and developing countries to increase the capacity of financial institutions providing low balance savings either through the provision of technical assistance to financial service providers (FSPs) or through the establishment of greenfield institutions. MLE also has a strong focus on harnessing the potential of technology driven alternate delivery channels (ADCs) and financial education in broadening outreach to financial services. Read More...
