Evaluation

UBORA   incorporates   different   methodological   approaches   to   Evaluation   (Theory   of   Change, Outcome  Mapping,  Most  Significant  Change,  etc.)  depending  on  the  organizational  needs  and objectives already identified. This range of tools and approaches facilitates the understanding of the context  in  which  the  project  is  intended  to  influence  as  well  as  measure  the  capacities and the effectiveness of the contribution of the organization towards social transformation.

The way we work:

COOPERACCIÓ

This  evaluative  exercise  using outcome  harvesting has  been  deemed  extremely  valuable since  it  places  value  on  the  participation  of  all  social  actors  proving  that  the  used  in  the programme have been appropriate and relevant in attaining its objective. In addition to this, the  evaluation  also  identifies  the  outcomes  for  reaching  higher  expectations  than  were formulated  in  the  programme  as  well  as  the  way  to  overcoming  the  implicit  Theory  of Change, with clear evidence showing that Cooperacció is a changing social agent / actor.

 

As  a  result of  the  evaluation  exercise,  some  of  the identified  outcomes were  far  beyond  the initial  expected  results  written  in  the  project  design,  as  well  as  in  the  implicit  ToC  of  the project.  The  outcomes  identified  have  reinforced  the  role  of  Cooperacció  as  an  effective social change actor.

 

 

CSEF

El  CSEF  (Civil  Society  Education  Fund)  is  a  CSO  International  Fund  linked  to  the  Global Campaign for Education (GCE), a coalition mainly composed of Development NGOs, teacher unions  from  more  than  80  countries  aiming  to  provide  better access  to  education  for  all through social mobilisation, advocacy and research. Within this frame, UBORA conducted an independent  evaluation  of  the  implementation  of  the  CSEF  programme  in  Sierra  Leone, Malawi and Mozambique with the aim to identify lessons learned about the architecture and functioning of the programme at regional, national and local levels;  its outcomes and impact in   those   particular   countries   and   also  provide   specific  input   on   the   capacity-building component of these local and national CSO coalitions. In  this  view,

 

UBORA  designed  and  proposed  a  formative  evaluation  based  on  its  Theory  of Change  (ToC)  at  two  different  levels:    First,  from  an  organisational,  management  and decision-making   perspective   outside   its   supranational   structure   (regional   level),   and secondly, from the operational point of view at national level. To this end, UBORA focused  on three   main  levels   of  analysis:  Organisational  structures,  Core  processes  and  its   main outcomes at both national and local levels.

 

Through this particular approach, UBORA provided specific recommendations which allowed for strengthening of the GCE’s main operational aspects from a supranational, national and local  perspective  as  well  as  its  decision-making  processes  on  both  organizational  and operational sides.

 

Furthermore, it also made it possible to frame the real contribution of this programme through its CSOs towards the mission and vision of the GCE, namely, the fight for the  right  to  education  for  all  at  national  and  local  level  through  social  mobilisation, advocacy, research and awareness raising  actions.
