Enhancing Capacity to Advance Accountability in Africa – Evaluating Progress towards Impact

CALL FOR EXPRESSION OF INTEREST

The ICJ Fund has initiated a process of embedding impact evaluation (IE) of its new and on-going re-grant recipients. The objective of including this IE component in the ICJ Fund’s programming is to demonstrate whether the project goals and beneficiaries works. This is particularly helpful as grant requests might appear potentially promising before the implementation but fail to generate the expected impacts.

Therefore, TrustAfrica seeks a consultant to carry out an impact evaluation of one of its partners. The evaluation will be implemented as part of the series on “African Civil Society’s Roles in The Fight Against Impunity” – aimed at show casing the impact of CSOs on the impunity gap for atrocity crimes in Africa, which will in turn provide a platform for the evaluation of the Fund’s efforts to build the capacity of civil society groups and strengthen networks across regions. 

The evaluation is expected to generate relevant findings, lessons and recommendations which will be shared independently with stakeholders and the wider community; and then later synthesized as part of the CSO Advancing accountability series to be published as a book. This will be used as best practice to guide and inform the design of future activities.
