Project Mid-Term Review of Social Mobilization of Women Affected by Conflict in Northern Uganda (SMOWAC)
The indicated project is a five-year initiative (2005-2009) of CARE Norway through the financial support of NORAD and is being implemented in northern Uganda. It is now in its third year of implementation and the goal is to improve household livelihood security and self-reliance of 50,000 internally displaced people mainly women through their participation in income generating activities, small enterprises, micro-finance activities, and appropriate agri-business initiatives by the year 2009. The objectives of the mid-term review were to assess the progress made by the project towards the socio-economic empowerment of women as well as examine the relevance of the project design and implementation approach vis-à-vis the actual needs of the target group. The consistency of the ongoing project activities with the new CARE Uganda's long term strategic plan and the overall CARE International vision and mission was explored. The sustainability of the project, with regard to its financial, technical and organizational aspects, was also looked into and recommendations were made.
