DGD Programme Evaluation

2017-2021 Evaluation

DGD-funded 5-year programme endline evaluations per country

2021 is a special year: it marks the end of the five-year programme funded by our biggest donor, the Belgian Development Cooperation (DGD). In all countries where we ran DGD-funded programmes, endline evaluations took place under guidance of ADE, to evaluate the results and impact of our programmes.

These endline evaluations show us where our strategies have delivered, but also occasionally where we did not reach the desired results. This is extremely valuable to us as learning organisation: they highlight how important it is to keep our boots in the field at all times, and to do better. We learn by doing, and we are disappointed but also proud of our failures… As long as we grasp these stumbling blocks as learning opportunities.”
