Evaluation of the Sponsorship Programme in Niger

Evaluation of the Sponsorship Programme in Niger

Key Aid Consulting conducted the mid-term evaluation of Save the Children’s sponsorship programme in Niger. The programme, implemented since 2015 in the Maradi region, is based on an integrated approach combining health and education activities to support the development of children aged 0-18. The evaluation aimed to analyse the achievements of the programme, its relevance to the needs and priorities of the target group, the nature of the partnerships established and the sustainability of the programme. The methodology used was based on interviews with key informants from a wide range of stakeholders, focus groups with parents, school staff and former programme beneficiaries. It also included workshops with children, using child-friendly facilitation techniques (drawing, role-playing, etc.). The methodology was also based on the “Rubrics” approach. The results of the evaluation will help Save the Children to improve the programme for the remaining period of implementation, but also for future sponsorship programmes in Niger and other countries.
