Nuru Ethiopia 2019 Impact Report
Principal Author: Ray Marshall Center
Co-author: Nuru International
Date: September 2020
Publication Type: Report, 11pp.
This report is commissioned by Nuru International.
RMC researchers have completed an annual impact report for the impact evaluation of Nuru International’s programming in Ethiopia. In 2013, Nuru Ethiopia (NE) set out to provide meaningful choices that empower communities to lift themselves out of poverty in a sustainable way. The NE development model seeks to address four key areas of need: 1) food insecurity, 2) inability to cope with economic shocks, and 3) unnecessary disease and death. In 2016, the Agriculture and Financial Inclusion programs were combined to make the Rural Livelihoods (RL) Program.
To track program impact, the NE Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) team collects yearly evaluation data to support all data-driven decision making. In 2016, Nuru International partnered with the Ray Marshall Center to better understand program outcomes and impacts. This report documents the analysis of the agricultural yield and income follow-up data collected in 2020 for the impact evaluation of Nuru International’s programming in Ethiopia.
