Background: International Institute of Rural Reconstruction (IIRR) is a US Based INGO with its Headquarters in the Philippines in Asia. IIRR began operating in Kenya since 1995 and has chosen Education for Pastoralist’s and Marginalized Communities as its flagship Program, with interventions implemented in Marsabit, Samburu and Isiolo Counties in Northern Kenya.
Despite the significant investment in pastoralist’s children education in those, the gains are being eroded by effects of Sexual Gender Based Violence (SGBV), especially Female Genital Mutilation (FGM), Early Forced Marriage and Young Girls Beading.
Therefore, with a grant from the United Nations Trust Fund to End Violence against Women (UNTF-EVAW), IIRR designed a project entitled; Stop Violence against Women and Girls in Samburu, Marsabit and Isiolo Counties ¡n Northern Kenya for Women and girls in Marsabit, Samburu and Isiolo counties to be better protected from SGBV and other harmful cultural practices, and survivors to have improved access to services and support (psycho-social, medical, and legal) by December 2018.
Purpose of the Final Evaluation: The evaluation will assess levels of accomplishments to generate relevant findings, lessons learnt, best practices and recommendations to be used by IIRR (the implementing organization) and other relevant stakeholders to guide and inform future similar projects.
Timeframe: The evaluation will cover the entire project duration from January 2016 — December2018 and all the project sites; i.e. Kargi and Korr in Marsabit County, Merti in Isiolo County and Wamba in Samburu County.
Target groups to be covered: The evaluation will cover both primary and secondary beneficiaries including women and girls, Community Trainers/Dialogue Facilitators, community members sensitized during project implementation, teachers, community leaders, cultural/religious leaders, health care providers, psycho-social counselors, paralegals, police and gender activists/human rights defenders at the minimum and also the broader stakeholders engaged throughout the project period.
