Women in Enterprise Phase II Final Evaluation

The ongoing conflict and economic crisis still remain the main drivers of food insecurity with the protracted conflict destroying livelihoods, limiting income opportunities and further reducing families’ ability to purchase food. The situation of women and girls in Yemen is very challenging; conflict has added layers of vulnerability for women and girls and exacerbated existing gender inequalities, and in 2017 Yemen was ranked at the bottom of the Gender Gap Index 2017 (144th out of 144 countries).

Taking Enterprise Development for Women Empowerment to Scale (TEDWES) in Yemen was aimed to support and empower Yemeni women economically focusing on 3 components:
- Women entrepreneurs’ skills and capabilities.
- Women’s visibility, collective voice and representation.
- Enabling conditions for women entrepreneurs.

The core objective of this evaluation was to provide evidence-based assessment of the program’s performance against the intervention logic and existing program indicators; through comparing end-line data to baseline data. In addition, the evaluation sought to assess the validity and relevance of the project to the needs and priority of the target groups and with knowledge around the gender equality challenges in the project context. Key to this evaluation was also to assess the sustainability of the outcomes of the project, beyond the project lifetime. The assessment utilized key evaluation questions to examine the relevance of the project indicated in these objectives.
