Publication Date: 01/04/2022
CARE International in Zimbabwe, with funding from the Australian Government through the Australian NGO Cooperation Program (ANCP) implemented a five-year Rural WASH project in Chivi District, Masvingo, Zimbabwe. The project commenced in July 2017 and is ending in June 2022. It was implemented in 10 wards. The Chivi ANCP WASH Project was being implemented in collaboration with Government Ministries and Departments through the District Water Supply and Sanitation sub-Committee (DWSSC) with CARE playing a facilitatory role in implementing field activities. The project aimed to improve the water, sanitation and hygiene services in 10 Wards in Chivi South, and targeted 1700 households (65 391 people-13609 men, 16456 women, 18394 girls and 16 932 boys). The project was implemented in two main phases, each phase covering 5 wards. Within those two phases, the needs and areas of interventions were annually reviewed together with DWSCC and new targets and their supporting budgets developed. The three thematic areas of the project were: rehabilitation of WASH Infrastructure; construction of girl child friendly, disability and gender sensitive toilets and demand led sanitation and hygiene. At the end of the project, CARE commissioned an End of Project Evaluation whose purpose was to assess progress made in the implementation of planned activities and in achieving the objectives and expected results as described in the project documents. A consultant was engaged who used internationally and widely used standard evaluation criteria of relevance, coherence, effectiveness, efficiency, impact, and sustainability.
