Evaluations in 2013
In 2013, eleven donor-funded projects were completed, two of which have already been externally evaluated. An external evaluation of a third project in Uganda, which finished at the end of 2013, has been planned for the first quarter of 2014. Another five projects in Sudan that were completed in 2013 have not yet been evaluated externally, but are scheduled to be evaluated as part of the country programme evaluation that will be conducted before the closure of the Sudan programme in May 2014. Three other projects completed in 2013 will be internally evaluated. Overall, 73 percent of finalised donor-funded projects will be externally evaluated, representing 83 percent of the total budget for donor-funded projects.
As planned, War Child also commissioned external evaluations on eight projects implemented by our partner organisations in 2013. Four projects were evaluated in Colombia, all of which are part of the broader Conn@ct.Now! programme, and two in the occupied Palestinian territory. In some cases projects were evaluated to assess the quality of new partner organisations, in other cases to assess the alignment of the projects with War Child’s recalibrated strategy. In addition, the planned external evaluation of the programme in Sri Lanka began in December 2013; the report is expected in March 2014. The internal evaluation of the Performing for Peace methodology used in two projects in Lebanon also started in December, but has been delayed for security reasons. You can find these two evaluations here.
Short-term donor grants for the emergency projects in Lebanon ended in 2013, but the projects will continue through funding by additional grants in 2014. An internal evaluation of the emergency projects was started by War Child’s Lebanon team in December 2013, but has been delayed for security reasons.
