Final Evaluation of Jordanian Community Development Support Program

This evaluation assessed the Jordanian Community Development and Support Program (JCDSP), which aimed to enhance the socio-economic well-being and quality of life for Jordanian host community members, especially for Jordanian women and young women and men (ultimate outcome). The Program was delivered by CARE Canada and CARE International in Jordan in two phases. Phase 1 spanned three years, from 2014 to 2017, and lent assistance to meet the most critical needs of vulnerable populations from communities in Irbid, Mafraq, Zarqa, and East Amman. Its objective was to augment and supplement overwhelmed government services brought on by the large scale migration of Syrian refugees within these four target communities. The Program’s second phase, lasting 18 months (April 2018 to September 2019), responded to the longer term challenges and opportunities as more and more of the Syrian refugees made the decision to permanently settle in these communities. Under this phase, the Program shifted focus from humanitarian assistance to women’s economic empowerment, social cohesion and safety net enhancements. Accordingly, under this second phase, only two out of the three intermediate outcomes were maintained. As part of the shut-down process of the Program, CARE Canada and CARE International commissioned this summative evaluation to look at the success and challenges derived from this process. Through the collection of primarily qualitative data and augmented with data collected by the Program, this evaluation: 1. Assessed the degree to which the program has achieved its outcome results (impact) and the relative relevance, efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability of program activities to generate these outcome results as per the Program’s theory of change; and 2. Provide insight, analysis and recommendations to CARE Jordan, and the CARE federation regarding the strengths and challenges of the programming to inform and improve future programming. Read More...

ETUDE SUR LA VIOLENCE CHEZ LES JEUNES

La présente étude jeunesse & VBG vise à dresser un état des lieux de la violence chez les
jeunes dans les régions de Ségou, Mopti et Tombouctou au Mali, et à comprendre les causes,
les conséquences/ manifestations et les préventions des violences chez les jeunes.
Pour ce faire, Care Mali et ses partenaires le consortium AMAPROS & ASSAFE à Ségou,YAG TU à Mopti et enfin le consortium ARDIL/CAID à Tombouctou, ont constitué une équipe de recherche afin de conduire une vaste étude de recherche qualitative auprès des MJT, des hommes engagés, les communautés dans les régions de Ségou, Mopti et Tombouctou.
Une revue documentaire a permis de consulter plusieurs documents, mais, en dépit de cela, il est à noter que certaines données, notamment quantitatives, ne sont pas disponibles ou impossible de les obtenir auprès des services de l’état par manque d’existence d’une base de données.
La violence compromet le bien-être physique et psychologique des jeunes garçons et des filles. Cette situation peut avoir des effets psychologiques à long terme sur les enfants et provoquer des séquelles, des abandons scolaires et, ce faisant, compromettre la réalisation de l’Objectif du Développement Durable(ODD), de même que la participation pleine et entière des jeunes garçons et des filles à la marche de la société. La prévalence, la fréquence et l’intensité de la violence dans la société n’a pas encore fait l’objet d’une étude approfondie et systématique au Mali concernant uniquement la jeunesse comme cible Cependant, les études disponibles sur les violences révèlent qu’il conviendrait d’améliorer la situation dans la société, si l’on veut qu’elle devienne un environnement sûr et protecteur pour les jeunes.

Impact Report Empowering Women and Youth for Sustainable Entrepreneurship through Agro Business

The idea of EWYSEA (Empowering Women and Youth for Sustainable Entrepreneurship through Agro-business) project was
conceived with the objective to create opportunities for earning income and becoming self-reliant, for both rural women and
youth groups through avenues of entrepreneurship. Krishi Utsho is a successfully proven supply chain model which has
improved the food security situation of vulnerable farmers and their families. As part of its commitment to improve the
gender parity in rural areas, where women and youth are the most vulnerable segments of society, and to improve the food
security situation in its program areas, KU implemented EWYSEA under its umbrella project to act as a vehicle for support.
This endline study was commissioned to assess the economic and social impact of the project and its initiatives on the target
groups, and the satisfaction level of customers and stakeholders of the EWYSEA project, with direct impact of EWYSEA on
beneficiaries. The endline study was designed as mixed methodology.

In the case of women entrepreneurs, major sources of income were found to be petty trade, agriculture and livestock farming.
All depended on cash income and only 33% on in-kind income. Range of monthly average income varied from BDT 2,100-
9,300, and major expenditures were for food, health, household purchase and children’s education. Most respondents
reportedly take household decisions jointly with their husbands; furthermore as earning members in HH they now enjoy more
decision making authority. Community level participation has increased since EWYSEA started. Women entrepreneurs found
training and awareness sessions conducted by Krishi Utsho highly informative and enlightening, by receiving information on
business strategy and marketing. Read More...
