End of project evaluation Education and Rural Development, Phase II
“Education and Rural Development, Phase II” (2009 – 2011) is the continuation of the project “Education and Rural Development, Zambia” (2004 – 2008) which was evaluated in 2008. Based on results and recommendations following that evaluation it was decided to extend the project for 3 more years in order to better achieve the planned results as well as to ensure sustainability. This evaluation was planned for the last year of the project (2011). The main focus of the project was to empower poor rural communities through primary education, adult literacy, food security and training in participation and organization. The purpose of this evaluation was to verify to what extent the interventions made by the project have benefited the target groups, to what extent the project has had an impact on the development in the target areas and how likely it is the project interventions will continue after the end of the project (sustainability).
