Favourite picture from the Pastoral study

Prateek favourite photo from the pastoral study. This photo is something which I could relate to. We could point out before going to the field how pastoral woman's work does not find itself within the women and work discourse but it was after understanding the relationship of women with animals, we could understand the nature of "work" which a pastoral woman does. 



Evaluation Frameworks or Guidelines to evaluate programs for Adolescent High Risk Girls

Dear Friends

I am writing to explore if any of our members are aware of evaluation frameworks or guidelines for evaluating programs that work with adolescents, particularly girls at high risk.

The Community of Evaluators South Asia, in partnership with Feminist Evaluators Network South Asia’s secretariat ISST (Institute of Social Studies Trust) and Positive Women’s Network India (PWN+) have been exploring the lived realities of high risk adolescent girls in several parts of India to acquire a better and more nuanced understanding of the engendered self in highly vulnerable communities of girls (HIV+ or affected girls, girl children of sex workers, stigmatized girls because of caste, class, trafficked girls and child brides). We have been generously supported by an EvalPartners Innovation Challenge Award.

We are in the process of analyzing our findings and wanted to use the evidence to develop evaluation guidelines that would inform decision makers. Any help in directing us to available evaluation guidelines for adolescents and preferably girls would be greatly appreciated.

Thanking you in advance,

Sonal Zaveri

Dear Sonal

There is need to innovate a qualitative method to evaluate adolescent  health program. Honestly speaking adoelscent health program is in nascent stage and coverage in public health is very weak. Private sector is  not evaluated as  there is not systematic  mapping of private sector in health sector. Also phase out of the adolescent phase in particular  high risk phase (14-19 years ) is very  transient in nature. 

I look forward to a discussion on  qualitative  method  framework for the evaluation in this forum.

Happy Holi to all
