Monitoring and Evaluation Technical Assistance for A Glimmer of Hope Foundation: Guidance About Target Populations and Interventions
Authors: Ashweeta Patnaik and Heath Prince
Date: June 2018
Publication Type: Report, 33pp.
From March 2018 through May 2018, the Ray Marshall Center provided technical assistance to support A Glimmer of Hope Foundation’s monitoring and evaluation (M&E) efforts. The RMC’s experience and expertise supported Glimmer’s work by demonstrating the effectiveness and robustness of its integrated approach to addressing poverty. In the first phase of technical assistance, RMC conducted an in-depth review of Glimmer’s baseline assessment study design and baseline assessment tools, and provided recommendations based on best practices from the literature.
In the second phase of technical assistance, RMC conducted an in-depth review of literature to understand the primary factors driving poverty in Ethiopia; interventions currently being implemented to address these factors; specific interventions that have been shown to be most effective; and interventions, issues, and target populations that other actors (government/NGOs) are addressing in the area and their effectiveness. In this report, we provide strategic advice and recommendations on the selection of appropriate target populations and appropriate target interventions for Glimmer (specifically in the livelihoods and education sectors).
