CONSULTANCY – Enhancing Youth Employment and Leadership Project (EYEL) in Vanuatu Endline Evaluation
The EYEL project:
Youth Challenge Vanuatu (YCV) is a non-governmental organisation headquartered in Port Vila, Vanuatu, whose mission is to provide quality programs and services throughout Vanuatu that assist disadvantaged youth to meet their life goals, reach their potential and to assist communities meet their development challenges. In addition, YCV assists young women and men to contribute to and lead the economic and social development of Vanuatu. YCV are direct implementers of the EYEL project and the EYEL project’s overall goal is:
“Young men and women, including marginalised youth, are leading economic and social development in Vanuatu.”
To achieve its goal the project has four intended outcomes:
- Outcome one: An increased number of young men and women in employment, self-employment, or study.
- Outcome two: Young men and women engaging as active citizens around issues that are important to them.
- Outcome three: YCV being recognised by government and the private sector as a leading youth advocate and provider of youth services.
- Outcome four: YCV being more financially sustainable.
Purpose of the Evaluation
The primary purpose of this endline evaluation of EYEL is to determine to how successful the Thrive project was at achieving its project outcomes.
The objectives of this assignment are to assess the EYEL project against the Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development’s Development Committee (OECD – DAC) criteria for evaluating development assistance: relevance, effectiveness, efficiency and impact of the project and likely sustainability of outcomes.
- Relevance: Whether and to what extent the Activity has addressed the needs and priorities of the target groups and is aligned with relevant partner (and country) policies and priorities.
- Effectiveness: Whether and to what extent the Activity has achieved the intended outcomes. This should reference a report of actual performance against the Results Framework.
- Efficiency: Narrowly defined, efficiency means the extent to which the Activity could have been implemented at less cost without reducing the quality or quantity of the benefits. More broadly, assessment of efficiency should include consideration of whether the intervention provided value for money.
- Impact: To the degree possible, include assessment of the likely impact (positive and negative, planned, and unplanned) of the Activity. Include available evidence on changes in the economic, social, and political situation and status of beneficiaries.
- Sustainability: Assessment of the likely sustainability of any benefits of the Activity based on an analysis of relevant institutional, environmental, and other contextual factors. Cross-cutting issues can be of particular importance in making this assessment.
In addition to the DAC criteria, the evaluation is to also address lessons learned: Key lessons learned from the project; lessons should clearly set out to whom they are directed, e.g. YCV Oxfam, donor, etc.
