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:
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.
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.
