Part of a peace and conflict assessment, a workshop between all relevant GIZ departments enabled Samuel Hall to present initial assessment findings and dig deeper into the issues faced by donors with regards to teaching and the mining sector in Afghanistan.
The findings of our evaluation for GIZ on their BEPA programme were shared with all national and international stakeholders at the Afghan Ministry of Education. Actors included government officials, donors, embassies and NGOs.
Our co-director Hervé Nicolle was invited to Doha, Qatar for the annual forum bringing together decision makers, influential experts and practitioners to explore ground breaking innovations and take concrete steps to make significant improvements to worldwide education. The annual World Innovation Summit for Education is the premier international platform dedicated to innovation and creative action in education where top decision-makers share insights with on-the-ground practitioners and collaborate to rethink education.
The present study’s first aim was to review the relevance and impact of the strategic choice made by GIZ BEPA’s to use community mobilization as a conduit for the promotion of girls’ secondary education. Its second aim was to evaluate the quality of implementation and sustainability of the programme; and finally, it will provide GIZ with practical recommendations for the improvement and potential extension of the programme.
The Youth Education Pack project targets male and female youth in Herat, Faryab and Nangarhar in Afghanistan. It provides life skills training, vocational training and literacy and numeracy training to vulnerable and illiterate youth under poverty level. The target group includes refugees, returnees and IDPs along with host communities. This report is an evaluation of the YEP project using the OECD-DAC criteria and substantive quantitative, qualitative and contextual information from the field.
An event featuring all revelant Afghan stakeholders such as the MoPH, WFP and others, enabled Samuel Hall to conduct a brainstorming session aimed at highlighting necessary strategies for the proper implementation of a media campain on fortified foods.
This baseline evaluation report for ACTED’s GEC implementation programme in Faryab comes at an important moment for the NGO, for Afghanistan and for the future of development assistance in areas marred by conflict. Not only is this survey unique in its structure and scope, but it is also the very first of three external baselines done in Afghanistan for DFID’s implementing partners. As such, it has the potential of serving as a benchmark for the other NGOs and for other large education projects that may or may not be undertaken in Afghanistan in the coming years.
As the Deputy Ministry of Youth Affairs, drafts the National Youth Policy of Afghanistan, this report commissioned by DMoYA, UNFPA, UNDP and UNICEF is a first of its kind to be a dedicated, up-to-date document on the youth. The purpose of this report is to understand the conditions, aspirations and current state of youth in Afghanistan.
A changing political, social and economic context requires the evaluation to start with a main research question: how can Seeds of Peace adapt its theory of change to the regional and local dynamics in South Asia (Afghanistan, Pakistan and India)?
