The main aspect of SF Asia’s development approach is building the partner capacity in facilitating empowerment of the Poor- to establish a strong civil society mechanism to upgrade the living standards of the marginalized, vulnerable and poor people.The MP of SF Bangladesh program has been developed in collaboration with local partners and based on the experience and the lessons learned in the past focusing on the following intervention lines to include- Empowerment community for democratization, Provide holistic pro-poor financial and non financial services, Strengthen formal and non-formal education (including dropouts), Empower Adolescents on their rights. The Program is governed by an extensive Logical Framework Analysis (LFA) with several indicators to assess changes in the lives of the target people. By end of 2013, about 180,000 households of Bangladesh are satisfying their livelihood needs in a sustainable manner. The overall purpose of this evaluation is mainly learning and improvement. SF Bangladesh anticipates that outcomes of this mid-term evaluation will provide relevant information to the ongoing scope of work of the partners; explore why the interventions implemented by the program succeeded or not; and provide guidance for subsequent implementation of the program during the next two years. The evaluation will also assess whether or not the programme plans were fulfilled and resources were used in a responsible way.
