Below is a selection of some of the projects Bodhi has worked with over the past few years.
Bodhi supported Oxfam in its implementation of the World Bank-funded Global Partnership for Sustainable Accountability grant. Through its support, Bodhi provided the programme with a localised Theory of Action, results framework, M&E methodology, and a final evaluation.
We undertook an urban contextual analysis of extreme poverty in Freetown, using a political economy approach to DFID’s sustainable livelihoods framework. The aim of the project was to understand extreme poverty in Freetown, with a focus on disaster risk in the city’s informal settlements. Analysing how social and political networks interact with indicators of urban poverty — facilitating or limiting access to better incomes, assets, services and employment opportunities in urban areas, we conducted fieldwork in three informal settlements in Freetown and produced a comprehensive contextual analysis report and on the basis of the research findings, developed programming options covering livelihoods, disaster risk reduction, health, education, and WASH.
Based on extensive fieldwork in nine chiefdoms, across three districts in Sierra Leone, Bodhi Global Analysis delivered a PEA report identifying and analysing the factors that influence women’s political participation, to provide recommendations for the next phase of SFCG’s existing project on increasing 15 women’s roles in decision-making, local development and social cohesion. The purpose was to evaluate existing projects and address any programming gaps for the next programme cycle.
