The Evaluation Fund supports research that helps civil society organizations, researchers, and governments better understand whether programs and projects designed to prevent violence against children really work. Since 2011, The Evaluation Fund has supported high-quality evaluations of programs. Further, that is designed to prevent violence against children in low- and middle-income countries. This year, Evaluation Fund is launching a Call for Proposals in collaboration with the Global & African Partnerships to End Violence Against Children to identify particularly promising programs and to evaluate their effectiveness.
Through this Call for Proposals, they will support research projects focusing on childhood violence prevention interventions. Further, in line with the INSPIRE Strategies. Applicants are welcome to apply for a project focused on evaluation research (to understand what strategies work to prevent violence against children). Also, implementation research (to understand how and why those strategies work in real-world application).
The scope of this call is limited to interventions in Tanzania and Uganda, whose governments have made a public commitment to end all forms of violence against children, as part of a framework to identify so-called “Pathfinding Countries.” Selected projects should, therefore, align with the priorities identified in either the National Plan of Action-Violence Against Women and Children in Tanzania or the national plan
to eradicate violence against children in Uganda.
Whether an implementing organization or a research team, you are eligible to apply if:
