Below is a selection of some of the projects Bodhi has worked with over the past few years.
Bodhi completed a mixed methods final evaluation of DRC’s Routes-Based Migration Response Programme. The evaluation aimed to assess the effectiveness and appropriateness of the programme, document outcomes and identify lessons learnt in an effort to inform future programming for DRC and partners.
Bodhi implemented a meta-analysis of projects funded through, or with indirect contribution from, the H2H Network. Specifically, Bodhi systematically assessed the strength of evidence for H2H's potential contribution to improved humanitarian outcomes through targeted technical assistance. Moreover, Bodhi also assessed network effects, or the extent to which membership in H2H had indirect impacts on the provision of humanitarian assistance.
Bodhi completed a qualitative evaluation of the Community-Driven Recovery and Security programme in Central Darfur, Sudan. For this evaluation, the team completed Key Informant Interviews and Focus Group Discussions, to assess the programme’s progress against the OECD-DAC criteria. The team also completed a revision of the programme’s Theory of Change, suggesting a revised model with component indicators.
We undertook a mixed-methods evaluation of DRC’s integrated programme in Kigoma, Tanzania structured around the OECD DAC criteria, while also investigating cross-cutting issues. Using representative quantitative surveying in refugee camps and host communities, along with qualitative interviews, we measured progress against endline indicators, as well as assessing achievement along the DAC criteria.
Bodhi undertook a final evaluation of the Northern Kenya Integrated Development Programme for Finn Church, conducting fieldwork in Elgeyo Marakwet and Baringo counties. The programme mobilises change agents to disseminate conflict mitigation messaging, while also providing livelihoods opportunities to former fighters.
We undertook a summative evaluation of Interpeace's Pathways to Lasting Peace in Libya project, which develops the capacity of community-based change agents to build social cohesion. Bodhi structured the evaluation along the OECD-DAC criteria, while identifying good practices, lessons learned, and providing contextually-relevant and precise recommendations.
Bodhi completed the final evaluation of the SCALE Award, a capacity strengthening, knowledge sharing and learning initiative to foster more resilient agricultural systems and enhance income opportunities. The evaluation assessed the Award design, relevance and effectiveness, engagement efficiency and sustainability. This evaluation also aims to inform future food security support mechanisms and other capacity strengthening and learning activities.
Bodhi has completed an end-line evaluation of Mercy Corps’ Addressing Diverse and Acute Primary Threats to Human Security in North-eastern Nigeria (ADAPT) Programme’. For this evaluation, the team implemented a regional-scale quantitative face-to-face survey to assess progress against fifteen standard BHA indicators. The team supplemented this survey with qualitative interviews. The evaluation used the 'outcomes harvesting’ approach to guide the analytical framework development.
Bodhi undertook a final evaluation of LEEP. It assessed the programme against relevant OECD-DAC criteria (effectiveness, impact, and sustainability) and the programme’s logical framework, with a focus on empowering youth to find meaningful employment or self-employment. This evaluation also explores cross-learning from other youth programmes and aims to inform future youth employment initiatives in Liberia or elsewhere, including possible future phases of the LEEP programme.
Bodhi undertook the mid-term evaluation of the FCDO and ECHO funded SAFER programme, implemented by Mercy Corps, Norwegian Refugee Council, Concern Worldwide, ACTED and Solidarites. The programme aims to reduce the vulnerability of households affected by conflict and shocks in Eastern DRC.
We completed a learning exercise for MC Nigeria's Maida programme, which reduces conflict through improved livelihoods in Borno state. The learning exercise involved the implementation of a large-scale quantitative survey and qualitative interviews. As part of the exercise, the team produced a revised Theory of Change, along with indicators, to guide future programming.
Bodhi undertook a mixed-methods endline evaluation of the Marché programme’s contribution to food security and response to basic needs of vulnerable households in Croix-des-Bouquets, Haiti. This evaluation includes an endline indicator measurement component, assessing progress against BHA standard indicators, such as FCS, HHS, and Sphere WASH standards. Additionally, Bodhi analysed the Theory of Change, providing a revised ToC that informed the design of the second phase of the programme.
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.
An impact evaluation of Oxfam’s Horn, East and Central Africa (HECA) Regional Platform’s Influencing Work through its Rights in Crisis network, which seeks to empower people affected by crises, and Extractive Industries programme, which seeks to elevate the voices of individuals impacted by the industry. The evaluation includes an assessment into the impact of both at the regional and country level as well as identification of lessons to guide the design of future influencing work.
Bodhi completed a baseline study of PRC’s Greening Red Cross and Red Crescent Disaster Risk Reduction programme. The aim was to provide information on ongoing knowledge, attitudes, and practices related to DRR, CCA and natural resources, determine status of project indicators, and assess the level of disaster preparedness.
Bodhi completed a Mid-term Evaluation of Save the Children International's 'Children Affected by Armed Conflict' programme. Working across sub-Saharan Africa, the programme aims to build the capacity of civil society and national stakeholders (e.g., armed forces) to advocate for and mainstream the protection of children and recognition of their rights.
We implemented a final evaluation on behalf of Search for Common Ground's Together for Security program. This programme aims to improve social cohesion in several conflict-affected communities, through building trust between communities and security forces assigned to these communities. Bodhi assessed the extent to which capacity building efforts and conflict resolution mechanisms were effective in minimising abuses by the security forces, whilst improving general human security for civilians.
A mixed-methods final evaluation of the "Advancing Tolerance in MENA" violence prevention program implemented by Search and the American Bar Association (ABA). The evaluation is using qualitative research methods. Bodhi is also utilising an 'outcomes harvesting' approach to identify and analyse positive and negative unintended outcomes of the programming. Bodhi will determine to what extent the program contributed to violence prevention and strengthening capacity and resilience of at-risk groups in Yemen and Libya. Using a participatory approach, Bodhi engages with key informants and stakeholders to rigorously examine each outcome and consider the links between them and potential change agents.
Bodhi conducted a mixed-methods evaluation of the SFCG-led, and Berghof Foundation and Interpeace- supported "Insider Mediation" programme. The programme aims to improve peace structures at the local level, while connecting local peacebuilding efforts to regional and global structures. Specifically, the programme develops the capacity of local change agents to proactively engage in conflict transformation.
Bodhi conducted a final evaluation on behalf of Search for Common Ground’s Youth Talk programme. The programme empowers young people through media in Mali, Central African Republic, and South Sudan. The evaluation also includes an assessment into how much the role of media, especially radio programming, transformed youth knowledge and skills, as well as attitude and perception changes among adolescents and adults towards each other, and whether adolescents feel their voices are being heard.
Bodhi implemented the final evaluation of UNFPA’s SRHR for migrants programming in Tunisia. Bodhi utilised an outcomes harvesting approach, working collaboratively with UNFPA, its partners and rights-holders to establish the causal relationship between UNFPA programming, the programming of its partners, and realised outcomes.
A midline evaluation of UNICEF’s Girls Reproductive Health, Rights, and Empowerment Accelerated in Tanzania intervention (GRREAT) designed to promote gender equality, empower adolescent girls and increase their access to sexual and reproductive health services. The evaluation also includes a gender analysis of selected interventions to assess their gender transformative value, as well as a scalability analysis to determine which interventions are scalable and sustainable long-term.
