CRC Advocacy through Radio-Television Programs for Children and Youth – End of Project Evaluation
The ‘CRC Advocacy through radio and TV and youth for children and youth’ project is implemented as part of Save the Children’s Child Rights Governance Programme in Laos. The project is the second phase of support for the Lao Youth Union’s (LYU) mass media department to run a child and youth-led radio and TV programme on child rights since 2007. The first phase of the project was implemented with support from Save the Children Norway (SCN) from 2007 – 2009 and a new phase started in 2010, following an assessment workshop to expand and further develop the radio and TV activities of the LYU. The project has been managed by Save the Children International (SCI) since transition to SCI in September 2011. There has not been a formal evaluation conducted before, only an assessment workshop conducted in 2009 to develop a second phase of the programme. Therefore the first purpose of this evaluation is to assess and document the progress to date of SC’s support to the LYU TV and radio activities. This should also include the development of a Timeline to document the history of the project and SC support. In addition, as this project is now coming to the end of a second phase (with the MoU ending in December 2012), a new project phase will be developed and so therefore this requires some key recommendations for the next phase of the project.
