End-of-Project Evaluation

Terms of Reference

 

Project Title:                   Increased active participation of Persons with Disabilities for Disability Inclusive Development in Loei Province

Implementing Partner: Daughters of Charity Foundation (DC)

Location:                         Loei, Thailand

Funding Partner:           German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development (BMZ)

 

Background

 

CBM has worked in partnership with DC (Daughters of Charity Foundation) for over 30 years, supporting its CBR (Community Based Rehabilitation) programme which target persons with disabilities as marginalised members of their communities. A midterm evaluation of DC’s CBR programme (P2872-MYP) conducted in 2014 by senior CBM advisers identified key areas for capacity development for DC, particularly in terms of expanding its approach to strengthen the capacity and agency of with persons with disabilities and their representative groups/ Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs).

 

Since 2016, DC implements a new multi-year project (42 months) with funding commitment from CBM and the German Federal Ministry for Economic Cooperation and Development BMZ (please see Annex 1: Description of Results and Indicators).

This project aims to strengthening the rights of persons with disabilities and improve the social participation at local and provincial levels. DC works closely with the local government authorities and the Disabled People’s Organisations (DPOs).

The project includes four components: awareness raising, establishment and registration of DPOs, capacity building and advocacy.

 

The project targets a diversity of stakeholders especially persons with disabilities and their families, students, volunteers, teachers, provincial and local authorities, hospitals.

 

Justification

 

At the end of project implementation, the donor, partner and CBM requires an end-of-project evaluation in response to the specific objective of the logical framework.

 

The end-of-project evaluation’s main purpose is to assess the achievements of the project with regards to the planned objectives of the project and propose recommendations for ways to improve the overall organizational capacity and implementation of Daughters of Charity.

Objective of the End-of-Project Evaluation

 

The main objectives of the project evaluation are to:

 

  • Determine the relevance of the project objectives with regard to the needs of persons with disabilities and their families
  • Evaluate the achievement of the objectives
  • Assess the framework methodology applied for the implementation and monitoring of the activities
  • Assess the status of the project, results achieved and differences compared to the planned activities in the project document
  • Appreciate the effectiveness (using quantitative and qualitative indicators) of the 4 project components
  • Analyse the functioning of the partner and CBM in the planning, implementation and monitoring of the project
  • Identify the strengths and weaknesses in the planning, implementation and monitoring of the project
  • Appreciate the efficiency of the project against the resources in place
  • Analyse the impact of the project on the target groups
  • Evaluate the capacity of the activities to become sustainable (accessing local resources)

More specifically, based on questions raised by DPOs and DC staff during the DID (Disability Inclusive Development) workshop organised in March 2018, the end-of-project evaluation will gather the following information:

 

  • The channels and key contacts to provide information on the Convention on the Rights of Persons with Disabilities (CRPD) in the areas of education and health;
  • The mechanisms to support persons with disabilities (across all impairment groups) facing challenges to receive governmental social protection support;
  • The existing initiatives (if any) fostering the economic empowerment of persons with disabilities and the challenges to access these financial schemes (vocational training opportunities, public and private employment programmes, self-employment, cooperatives, access to micro-credit, etc.);
  • The system in place to enable persons with disabilities to access medical and rehabilitation care including assistive devices/technical aids and the obstacles they face;
  • The existing representative organisations of persons with disabilities (DPOs), how they support persons with disabilities and their families and what kind of support do they need as organisations;
  • The place and involvement of DPOs in communities and the level of participation of persons with disabilities in community meetings, strategic planning processes and various activities;
  • The efforts made by community based organisations (and more specifically Daughters of Charity), to include persons with disabilities among their staff, to apply reasonable accommodation measures and to ensure that persons with disabilities drive and participate in their activities.

 

This information will be gathered through consultations with key stakeholders such as government agencies and local authorities, persons with disabilities and their families, DPOs/ DPAs, community leaders, service providers, DC staff and CBM.
