The implementing partners are: Women’s Fund in Georgia (WFG), Women Engage for a Common Future - Georgia (WECF), Kvemo Kartli Media (KKM) and the organisation “For Rights and Education” (FRE).

The project is targeted to two regions: Kvemo Kartli and Imereti and focuses on improving women’s labor rights in the above-mentioned areas.
Activities carried out during the project time span include: the Training of Trainers on women’s labor rights; developing a training manual; organising trainings in Kvemo Kartli and Imereti region for target groups: women’s NGOs and individual women’s rights and labor rights activists, vocational groups, local media, representatives of gender equality councils in the municipalities, etc; Sub-granting (6 organisations and initiative groups in the target regions were supported with small grants for projects to improve women’s labor rights and conditions in their communities each year. In total 12 grantee partners were supported in two years); Workshops and conferences for advocating women’s labor rights and economic empowerment; Media coverage and awareness-raising activities through the short informational videos.
External evaluator(s) will assess the long-time indicators, logframe and long-term impact of the project, based on the relevant methodology, interviews with the beneficiaries, data collected from MEL persons, publications and other sources of verification. The external evaluation is a final project evaluation and is meant to testify to what degree the project achieved its goals based on the indicators and logframe. The evaluator(s) will also make recommendations usable on a country level, by the four partners.
Key questions the evaluation should answer:
1. To what extent were the objectives of the programme valid?
2. Are the activities and outputs of the programme consistent with the overall goal and the attainment of its objectives and the intended impacts and effects?
3. Were the activities cost-efficient? Was it the most efficient way to implement them?
4. What real difference has the activity made to the beneficiaries? How many people have been affected?
5. To what extent can the benefits of a programme or project continue after ending?
Women’s Fund in Georgia announces an open call for the recruitment of an evaluator or team of evaluators for conducting impact assessment of WFG’s internal project “Job Equality” towards its goal. The aim of the external evaluation is to carry out an unbiased analysis of the range of activities that WFG, WECF, KKM and FRE along with the 12 grantee partners have carried out in order to achieve the objectives and to draw recommendations for further development. The evaluation will be made by external evaluator(s) – qualified expert(s) – and involves following stages:
The most successful candidate/candidates will be chosen by WFG management and will be invited for the interview. The final decision will be made based on the experience of the evaluator (or team) as well as the proposed methodology for the evaluation considering specificity of WFG’s work. The selected candidate/candidates will start work by November 26, 2021 and will evaluate the impact of the two-years long project.
