    Evaluation Inclusive Child Development Opportunity in Accra, Ghana – Early Identification and Intervention - CBR

    1. Introduction

    According to UNICEF, the first years of life receive the least attention and investment from governments.

    From the approximately 132 million children born worldwide every year, many do not receive the necessary attention, nutrition, health care, nurture and protection they need for a healthy development.

    The rights of children are embodied in various human rights documents. But their human rights are still disregarded millions of times over. Every year, 9.2 million children (2009) still die before reaching the age of five.

    But even if the children survive, all too often they cannot thrive, having acquired poverty-related forms of physical and/or intellectual impairment or developmental delay.

    According to UNICEF, these are at least 10% of all children, in other words more than 200 million.

    An even larger number suffer from limited learning skills and other disabilities preventing them from being able to develop to their full potential. These are the forgotten victims of poverty.

    Early childhood development is an important factor towards achieving the Millennium Development Goals. Seven of the eight goals directly concern the survival and development of children, meaning all children.

    It is therefore of great importance to significantly increase the commitment in this area so that the development goals can be attained.

    CBM West Africa in cooperation with Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG) are developing since 2012 Inclusive Child Development activities that are integrated into the PCG health system and linked with primary educational services

    The aim is to stimulate inclusive development of children with/at risk of disabilities in the society. The PCG- inclusive child development (ICD) Program, started under the Presbyterian Health Services- North (PHS-N) after a pilot study in 2011 identified gaps within the health services related to childhood disability; Impairments in early childhood were delayed detected.

    Consequently, the impairment resulted in a disability. Secondly, there were little or no services provided for Children with or at risk of developing disabilities. Thirdly, it was realised that preventable childhood disability could be well addressed through these Primary Health care, CBR programmes and school health programmes.

    The integrated ICD program has a focus on the early detection and prevention of childhood disabilities within the primary health care set up. The main activities involve training of community health workers on the prevention, detection and facilitation of referral of these children for appropriate interventions.

    We also ensure that these children are not only provided the needed services but are also assisted to enroll and stay in school.

    The program has its office within the head office of the PCG. The ICD office collaborate with the Ghana Health services, Ghana education service, department of social welfare and the MMDA’s of all the districts with operate in, namely The shai – Osuduku District and Osu-Klotey Sub metro in the Greater Accra, Asante-Akyem District in the Ashanti region, Dormaa Municipal in the Brong Ahafo Region, the Bolga, Bawku, Talensi Nabdam, Kasena –Nankana, Builsa north and south districts all in the Upper East region, East Mamprusi in the Northern region.

    2. Evaluation context

    CBM and PCG

    PCG presentation and cooperation with CBM; see below:

    The Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG) is the third largest provider of health care in Ghana, and a lead provider of education. It runs a total of 52 health facilities, including four district hospitals, 32 health centers and 9 primary health care outreach programmes.

    It runs 3 health training schools for nursing and midwifery, and a key component of their health strategy is to work in more deprived communities.

    CBM’s support to the Presbyterian Church of Ghana (PCG) has over 25 years established services for persons with disabilities, and Community Based Rehabilitation (CBR) programmes in the Upper East Region.

    Since 2012, a national programme was supported by CBM, the ICD programme, with resulted to the involved of other PCG regions and partners as well.

    CBM [] is an international Christian development organization, committed to improving the quality of life of people with disabilities in the poorest communities of the world.

    The emphasis throughout CBM's work in poorer regions of the world is on local capacity development.

    This increases service delivery in the fields of healthcare, education, rehabilitation and livelihood development as well as organizational development of partner organizations.

    Inclusive Child development in Ghana

    ICD program is implemented by PCG Primary Health Care and Community based Rehabilitation programmes.

    The National Health coordinator and the National ICD coordinator of the PCG are responsible for the overall coordination of this integrated programme.

    The PHC- and CBR coordinators are responsible for monitor and evaluation on the field. The ICD officers in each programmes are facilitating ICD activities within the PHC and CBR programmes.

    Inclusive Child development (ICD) in Ghana targets approaches for a healthy and stimulating child development for all children, including children at risk of or with a disability.

    Inclusive Child Development aims at:

  • Reducing the incidence of children born with a disability due to antenatal & neonatal causes (primary prevention);
  • Reducing the disabling effect of an impairment during early childhood by early detection and early intervention (secondary prevention).
  • Reducing social and educative exclusion during early childhood (0-5 years) & Primary school years (6-12 years) (Tertiary prevention).

    The ICD follows specific steps with children and other service providers in Ghana such as:

  • Early identification of disabilities, including learning disabilities,
  • Provision of appropriate interventions,
  • Empowering mothers/childminders to become proactive in relation to their children’s activities ,
  • Dissemination of material crucial to the development of young children,
  • To partner and network with other service providers ,
  • To establish and maintain relevant models of child intervention programs,
  • To make appropriate referrals ,
  • To facilitate inclusive education
  • To reduce stigma and local beliefs & practices related to childhood disability

    In 2015, the ICD program follow specific steps to sustain Inclusive Child Development within PCG and its main partners such as:

  • Developing a disability-inclusive Trainings curriculum for all national Nurses and Midwifery trainings colleges which include Child hood disability components related to prevention, early detection, early intervention and disability definition & right issues. The Nurses and Midwifery Council (NMC) is responsible for distribution and training, supported by CBM/PCG.
  • Implement an ICD early intervention program-component which has been linked to research and research institutes with the aim to adequately obtain evidence based recommendations for long term sustainable implementation. The research outcomes are used to advocate for disability inclusion on child health policy and strategy level.
  • Training the PCG management on Inclusive Development and Disability which e.g. leaded to include childhood disability and its indicators within their 5 year PHC strategic planning and budgeting.

    3. Objectives and Scope of the evaluation

    CBM decided to commission this evaluation to guide and provide inputs to its future strategic orientations in Ghana.

    Indeed, CBM is working with PCG for a long time now and so far none of the projects have been hardly evaluated.

    This evaluation will assess the ICD program performance to date (especially in terms of relevance, effectiveness, efficiency and participation), and determine the likelihood of ICD program achieving its “intended” outcomes and impacts, including their sustainability. The evaluation has two primary purposes:

    1) To provide evidence of results to date and of the likelihood of outcomes and impact in the future, and

    2) To identify the challenges and risks and to derive improving actions needed for the project to achieve maximum impact and sustainability.

    In addition, the evaluation is expected to promote learning, feedback, and knowledge sharing through results, accomplishments and lessons learned among PCG and the project partners.

    In this particular case, there are no project documents as such with logic framework, budget, planning and monitoring and evaluation system.

    Therefore as adequate information on baseline conditions, objectives and results to achieve, activities and indicators are missing, it is requested from the evaluator to consider any simplifying assumptions that were taken and shared to enable her/him to make informed judgements about ICD “performance”.

    Nevertheless for clarity and evaluation purpose, it will be used ICD program or ICD as terminology throughout the ToR.

    4. Evaluation questions

    The main topics covered by the evaluation will be the following:

    Achievement/attainment of outputs, outcomes and activities

    The evaluation should assess the extent to which ICD program “implicit” objectives were effectively and efficiently achieved or are expected to be achieved and their relevance.


    The evaluation will identify and assess the key conditions or factors that are likely to contribute or undermine the persistence of benefits when financial and technical support to the ICD program will be reduced or ends ( once the expatriate in charge will leave Ghana for i.e).

    Some of these factors might be outcomes such as PCG stronger institutional capacities or better informed decision-making. Other factors will include contextual circumstances or developments that are not outcomes of the project but that are relevant to the sustainability of outcomes.

    The aspects of sustainability to be addressed are: financial, institutional/organizational, socio political and technical.


    Replication approach is defined as lessons and experiences coming out of the project that are replicated or scaled up in the design and implementation of other projects.


    PCG (and other partners if relevant) ownership / driveness

    This is the relevance of the ICD thematic and program to PCG and other key partners.

    Stakeholder participation / public awareness

    This consists of three related and often overlapping processes: information dissemination, consultation, and “stakeholder” participation. Stakeholders are the individuals, groups, institutions, or other bodies that have an interest or stake in the outcome of ICD program.

    Implementation approach

    This includes an analysis of ICD’s management framework, adaptation to changing conditions (adaptive management), partnerships in implementation arrangements, changes in ICD program design, and overall management.

    5. Methodology

    This Evaluation should be done in a participatory manner. The people contacted will be in direct contact with the ICD program such as CBM ICD advisor, PCG ICD referent (s) PCG managers and staff, community and families members, children with disabilities, partner’s representatives, etc.

    The evaluation has to be largely based on interviews with the target groups (8 PHC-ICD programmes and 3 Educational partners) and beneficiaries with a great attention put on the target groups’ and beneficiaries' appreciation of the different ICD components and to their own evolution or change all along the programme implementation. Moreover, the interviews should take the specificities of each target group in consideration.

    The evaluation will employ qualitative and quantitative research techniques. These included data/document review, field visits, and interviews. The findings of the evaluation will be based on the following:

    A desk review of project documents including, but not limited to; Annual reports, Sande ma pilot study, KAP study Community health Nurses and Midwives, ICD guidelines, ICD Thesis, PHC-ICD 5 years planning framework & Indicators. Interviews with ICD management team and the technical support one ;

    Collaborating, Learning and Adapting Advisor For CVE and Conflict Programming in Accra, Ghana

    1. Introduction and Background

    USAID/West Africa is a regional mission with development assistance activities in 19 countries. The Mission is located in Accra, Ghana. The CLA Advisor position will be based in USAID/West Africa’s Regional Peace and Governance Office, which aims to strengthen systems of non-violent conflict management by supporting activities in regional democracy, governance, and human rights (DRG) and countering violent extremism (CVE).

    A core component of RPGO’s work on DRG aims to reduce electoral conflict as well as supporting conflict early-warning more broadly in the region. In response to the considerable challenges in gathering early warning data and plan for adequate response interventions in West Africa, the United States Government (USG) launched the Early Warning and Response Partnership (EWARP) with the objective to bolster the capacity of the ECOWAS Warning and Response Network (ECOWARN) to monitor, gather, analyze and disseminate threat information to its 15 member states to support peace and security in the region.

    The U.S. Department of State, Security Affairs Office, and USAID/West Africa share the responsibility for EWARP implementation and supporting long-term strengthening of ECOWAS’s early warning and response processes.

    RPGO’s CVE work spans the region and addresses threats from various extremist groups, Al-Qaeda in the Islamic Maghreb and Boko Haram being examples. RPGO implements the majority of the USAID portion of the multi-agency (USAID, State and Department of Defense) Trans-Sahara Counterterrorism Partnership (TSCTP).

    This strategic partnership represents the U.S. government’s single, largest effort to assist potentially vulnerable regional and national actors to constrict the tactical and strategic operating environment of terrorists in the West Africa sub-region.

    Funding for CVE efforts from TSCTP and other sources, averages approximately $15 million a year. RPGO endeavors to counter violent extremism through programming focused on youth engagement, good governance, media outreach, and community development.

    2. Basic Functions of the Position

    The position’s primary purpose is to provide leadership, guidance, and overall direction to RPGO’s collaboration and learning efforts.

    He/she will advance collaboration with key stakeholders, promote learning, and support processes to enable adaptation in RPGO programs.

    The Advisor is RPGO’s principal champion and coordinator for planning and staging organizational reflection and learning opportunities.

    The incumbent will foster strong, professional relations with key staff in the Program Office and the RPGO to implement RPGO’s learning agenda.

    The incumbent, working with RPGO A/CORs will also foster professional relations with key external partners, colleagues in other USAID missions in West Africa and Washington, D.C., interagency colleagues, and stakeholders to support a Community of Learning and a range of other processes to achieve the objectives of the learning agenda, an articulation of RPGO learning priorities which will be developed and led by the Advisor.

    The Advisor will build CLA functions within the RPGO by advising on learning practices, as well as knowledge management and related systems, including project MEL plans.
