Job Description

Million Memory Project Zimbabwe is seeking to engage a consultant to conduct an external final project evaluation for the Terre Des Hommes Sweiz “Strengthening Psychosocial Support, SRHR and ART retention programs for children and youths living with HIV”. The evaluation will apply an outcome harvesting methodology to assess the success of the project. The evaluation involves reviewing internal and external documents as well as conducting outcome harvesting sessions, key informant interviews (KIIs) and/or focus group discussions (FGDs) with the project team, partner, authorities and project beneficiaries. These Terms of Reference (TOR) serve as a request for proposals from individual consultants/ firms interested in conducting the evaluation.

Objectives

The Evaluation is being undertaken in order to independently assess:

  • It should also ensure that lessons learnt and best practices from the project are identified for future project planning.
  • It will also provide specific recommendations regarding any follow – up actions.

The evaluation is being undertaken approximately 1 month prior to the end of project’s 3-year implementation period so that lessons learned and recommendations made can be factored into forward planning.

  • Effectiveness: To which degree did the activities meet the objectives and results set out in the project (as outlined in the logical framework 2019 -2021)?
  • Matching needs: Did the project/activities meet relevant needs of the beneficiaries?
  • Relevance: Was the project designed in a way that is relevant to reach its goals?
  • Efficiency: Was the project run in an efficient way?
  • Sustainability: Are the results achieved so far sustainable? Any other issues deemed relevant by the evaluator.
  • The evaluator can add more things based on their understanding of the evaluation and project.

  • An evaluation report;
  • Recommendations;
