Pamodzi Consulting is very pleased to announce it has been awarded the contract to complete the end program evaluation of Amnesty International's Education- Empowerment-Justice Programme (EEJP). The EEJP is a five year programme that is managed by Amnesty International Norway. It offers Amnesty's national and regional offices globally the opportunity to implement Human Rights Education activities in five different thematic areas:
- The Price of Freedom and Expression (ensuring justice for those penalised for exercising their freedom of expression in Middle East and North Africa)
- Targeted and exploited (ensuring justice for women suffering discrimination globally)
- Targeted and exploited (ensuring justice for minorities suffering discrimination in Europe)
- Unscrupulous Greed (ensuring justice for victims following corporate infringements of human rights globally
- In War’s Backyard (ensuring justice for victims after armed conflicts in Africa)
- New Spring (ensuring fair legal systems in Tunisia, Egypt and states in the Middle East)
In 2015 with our associate Community Works we completed the mid-term review. We are pleased to be collaborating again for this end of programme evaluation which will be implemented between April and November 2017.
Amnesty expects that this evaluation will make assessment of three aspects of the programme:
The evaluation will make an assessment of three aspects of the programme:
i. Results - the extent that results against the programme’s objectives were achieved and are sustainable;
ii. Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) – the methods used at programme and individual project level and the effectiveness of the methods used;
iii. Empowerment – the extent to which empowerment of the target groups has been achieved and the ways in which this has been measured;
The evaluation process applied is expected to be participatory, generate learning for the project partners and for Amnesty, and support capacity development.
To fulfill the objectives we have designed an evaluation methodology that focuses on qualitative and participatory methods that engage with and gain contributions from the implementing partners in data collection, analysis and in generating shared learning and findings. We will use an on line interactive discussion and learning forums that explore the empowerment concepts applied in the programme, and the M&E approaches used. Four regional workshops will be facilitated that will enable face to face interaction and more indepth analysis and discussions; and an on line survey and key informant interviews will also be used to collect data.
We look forward to sharing more about our experiences of implementing the process and our findings over the coming months.
