Multi-country Mid-term Review of POWER

Client: ActionAid International

Service: Project Evaluation

Countries/Region: Bangladesh, Pakistan, Ghana and Rwanda

Years: 2018-19

AIMS evaluated ActionAid’s women’s economic empowerment project operating in Ghana, Rwanda, Bangladesh and Pakistan by federation offices with administrative and advisory support from ActionAid UK and the global secretariat. The Promoting Opportunities for Women’s Empowerment and Rights (POWER) project aims to improve the livelihoods of 21,000 women, mobilizing them to claim their rights as caregivers and income-earners in their households and communities through advocacy and direct programming focused on recognition and redistribution of unpaid care work at household-level and nationally within the GDP, reduction in violence against women and girls (VAWG), and promotion of agroecology and market access. The POWER project is a five-year initiative (2016 – 2020) supported by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs, Netherlands. The MTR was qualitative in nature, assessing the results and unintended effects of ActionAid’s integrated-approach at mid-term and documenting lessons across geographic areas to help reinforce and/or revise the project theory of change and provide recommendations for the final two years of project implementation. The project deliverables included one overall multi-country report as well as individual country-specific reports.
