Summative Program Evaluations for the S/GWI Secretary’s Innovative Small Grants Programs
The aim of the summative evaluation of the Secretary’s Innovation Awards program was to draw out the cross-cutting findings and conclusions from case study evaluations of the three projects and organizations that received the awards with the purpose of communicating the results to internal and external stakeholders. The three implementing organizations, Samasource, KickStart International, and Chintan Environmental Research and Action Group, were extremely diverse, both geographically and in their approaches to poverty reduction. DevTech and its partner, the Public Health Institute (PHI) assembled a team of professionals with qualifications uniquely suited for the evaluations. The team’s strong expertise in gender analysis and in the health and economic sectors provided the capacity to collaborate with US Department of State Office of Global Women’s Issues (S/GWI) to implement these two summative evaluations.
