Project: Education and Training of Youth for Democracy in Burkina Faso
Evaluation Date: June 2012
Report: [report link]
Lesson Learned:

The grantee was not able to provide indicators related to the number of leaders trained who voted; and no information was available to assess the impact of the messages delivered to the youth by the young trained leaders. In this respect, the grantee was very optimistic to consider that increasing knowledge would be sufficient to motivate and mobilize the young leaders, and by extension, the youth of Burkina Faso to vote.

Project: Education and Training of Youth for Democracy in Burkina Faso
Evaluation Date: June 2012
Report: [report link]
Lesson Learned:

Although the project did focus on identifying and mobilizing young leaders across Burkina Faso and on implementing numerous trainings and sensitizing activities, it did not set up a monitoring and reporting strategy to assess progress achieved and to motivate and mobilize young leaders to relay the training contents to other youth. In hindsight, it appears that there would have been scope for the grantee to apply for a larger project budget, which could have helped to reinforce these monitoring and evaluation aspects.
