SUPPORT YOU IN ACHIEVING HIGH IMPACT

INDEPENDENT EVALUATION OF A THREE-YEAR URBAN RESILIENCE PROJECT IN BANGLADESH

Philanthropy Advisors was mandated by the C&A Foundation to conduct an evaluation of a three year urban resilience project led by an international NGO and a local actor in Gazipur City, Bangladgesh, to assess successes, failures and missed opportunities.

This evaluation was commissioned primarily as a learning exercise, being additional and complementary to a seperate endline evaluation which will document the project’s results in a more quantitative way. The overarching objective of this evaluation was to extract the main lessons learned from the funded project in order to ensure that best practices are incorporated in the potential scale-up or replication of such an intervention in similar settings.

ICRC-INDEPENDENT EVALUATOR FOR THE HUMANITARIAN IMPACT BOND

Philanthropy Advisors has been mandated by the first Humanitarian Impact Bond (HIB) consortium as the official “Independent Evaluator”. The consortium is made of Government Development Agencies (UK, Switzerland, Belgium, Italy) as well as La Caixa Foundation a private Spain-based charity, two major Law Firms, two major Insurance Companies, Lombard Odier Bank and KOIS Invest.

The Impact Bond funds ICRC new physical rehabilitation centres in Africa (in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Mali and Nigeria) and the running of them over a given period, providing services for thousands of people.

The “outcome measure”, that determines how much the outcome funders pay, is the ratio between the “staff efficiency ratio” (SER) in the new centres over that of the benchmark centres. SER is calculated as the number of beneficiaries who regain their mobility per mobility-device professional employed in the centre (i.e. prosthetist or orthotist).

Philanthropy Advisor’s mission is to set the SER benchmark and to evaluate after five years the SER in the new centres and report the findings to the outcome funders and social investors.

The IDEAS BOX, a revolutionary, portable media center packed in a kit that can be set up in less than 20 minutes, includes a satellite internet connection, tablets, and books in paper and electronic format, bringing culture and education tools faster and closer to those in need. In Burundi, the IDEAS BOX has already contributed dramatically to the improvement of the well-being of Congolese refugees by:

  • providing children with a safe space to play and learn, reinforcing the existent (but insufficient) education materials in the refugee camps,
  • reinforcing community bonds by providing the perfect place and tools for community groups to meet and discuss about relevant issues including early childhood development and health.
