The global objective of this assignment is to carry out a mid-term evaluation of the EU funded programme "Enhancing access of children to education and fighting child labour" (ENPI/2012/024-570).
The mid-term evaluation will provide decision-makers in the Government of Egypt, the WFP, and the European Union (EU) with an overall independent assessment presenting sufficient information to make an informed judgement about the performance of the programme (its efficiency, effectiveness and the likelihood for the programme to achieve its stated objectives) and to take decisions about any required adjustments for the last two years of implementation.
It will also identify key lessons. The mid-term evaluation mission and the subsequent recommendations of the assignment shall contribute to the improvement of the programme.
The specific objectives of this mid-term evaluation are:
• To conduct a comprehensive review of the performance of the programme to assess key elements of relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, sustainability, and impact among other important criteria.
• To identify lessons learnt and recommendations for the improvement of the programme's performance.
• To assess whether the programme is on track to achieve its outcomes and impact, and make recommendations for an exit strategy that would ensure sustainability of the outcomes after the completion of the programme.
The mid-term evaluation shall cover the period from the start-up of the Programme until March 2017.
