4. Are they likely to be sustainable in the long term?
5. Have there been changes to policies, practice and attitudes of decision and policy makers to benefit the project’s target groups?
6. To what extent has the project contributed to the achievement of broader national and international policies, conventions, targets, etc in Kenya?
7. To what extent has the achievement of the changes/ outcomes been influenced by external context and other factors?

ii) How has the programme made this difference? Activities and approaches used by the programme or implementing organisations:
1. What were the overall theories of change for HOVIC? Have they been effective in bringing about lasting change? Where there any gaps?
2. What have been the most effective methodologies and approaches HOVIC used to bring about changes to beneficiaries’ lives? What has worked well and what has not? What lessons have been learned? Who have they been shared with?
3. How have the vision and structure of the organisations and the relationships between partners throughout the relationship chain (looking at Comic Relief-WOI and WOI-HOVIC) helped or hindered the delivery of change/outcomes?
4. How effective have the project’s management, monitoring, learning and financial systems been? How have they helped or hindered the delivery of lasting change?
5. How has the grant enabled HOVIC to reinforce their core business and scale up their intervention?
6. Has the project represented good value for money?

  • How has WOI’s approach to grant management (e.g. partnership approach, work with partner organisations, organisational development, learning activities and processes) helped or hindered the delivery of lasting change?
  • How effective has WOI’s support been to partner organisations to strengthen organisational capacity and effectiveness?
  • How effective has WOI been in facilitating learning of local partners throughout the grant?
  • Are there any aspects of WOI’s support that could have achieved greater impact if they had been done differently?
  • What role should WOI play in strengthening partners’ work in a new phase of work?

    Expected outcomes
    The End of project Evaluation is expected to identify lessons learned from the project and formulate specific recommendations for HOVIC, WOI and Comic Relief on:
    a) Improving and maximising impact
    b) Promoting best practice, innovation and learning
    c) Sustaining growth and progress in community initiatives
    d) Improving the partnership and relationship with WOI in any future work

    In outlining the methodology, we expect the consultant to demonstrate their understanding of the TORs, their overall approach to carrying out the work and provide a detailed outline of the methodology and an indicative work plan for the evaluation. This would include the design and development of tools for use in carrying out the evaluation.

    The methodology will also include case studies to assess how the grant has benefited targeted street children.

    The consultants will specify how the information for case studies will be collected and used to contribute to the evidence base to demonstrate the impact of the project.

    The consultant will review documents and reports provided by Hope for Victoria Children and Widows and Orphans International and will produce an informed inception report on how the consultant will carry out the evaluation, details of instruments and tools to be used in collecting primary data, analysis and reporting.

    We expect the inception report to identify the issues that will be addressed during the evaluation and propose a detailed timeline of the key activities of the evaluation including field visits to HOVIC to meet with key staff and stakeholders and project beneficiaries.

    The Consultant should assess and verify the quality of the information generated by the project by undertaking a quality assessment of: Project M&E and learning (MEL) systems (validity and reliability of data collection, storage and analysis; effectiveness of processes to use and share information)

    We expect the consultant to interview the Comic Relief Grants Manager and WOI staff responsible for international programmes.

    The consultant will present initial findings to HOVIC management team, the board and invited key stakeholders.
