Plan International & Relief International, Ethiopia & Somalia


Plan and Relief International are implementing a project funded by the EU to support education for displaced people and host communities in Gambella, Ethiopia and Puntland, South Sudan. Meraki Labs conducted a midline evaluation for partners, comprising a review of performance against OECD-DAC criteria, as well as a review of the research component implemented by the University of Sussex and local research partners. Qualitative data was collected and analysed; quantitative data provided by University of Sussex was cleaned and analysed for correlation. The project provided concrete suggestions for improving outcomes, notably around beneficiary feedback and accountability as well as gender and inclusion of marginalised groups. It must be noted that the views expressed in the report are Meraki’s alone and do not necessarily reflect those of the consortium, its partners or donor.
