Projects in Monitoring, Evaluation and learning

Global Polio Eradication Initiative - Pilot program evaluation

ATR supports UNICEF’s polio efforts through independent third-party monitoring, providing UNICEF with triangulated and validated field-level information and identifying critical program performance issues, thereby allowing UNICEF to make informed decisions and adjustments. 

Maternal and Child Health Handbook - Pilot program evaluation

ATR evaluated the impact of using a single vaccination handbook rather than separate documents for each vaccination as part of UNICEF’s Maternal and Child Health (MCH) handbook program. The result of ATR’s mixed-methods evaluation were positive and led to the Afghan Ministry of Public Health’s decision to implement the vaccination handbook at the national level. 

Girls Can Code

The “Girls Can Code!” program is a Womanity Foundation project aimed at teaching web development to 11th and 12th grade girls. ATR assessed the potential of the program to address the needs of the labor market and provided access to employment for females in Afghanistan. ATR also provided recommendations for future replications of the project. ATR’s evaluation of the program featured a review of the course materials, a phone survey, focus group discussions with students, and in-depth interview with potential employers.

Rural Access Improvement Project (RAIP) — Impact Evaluation

ATR assessed the extent to which road infrastructure and the small-scale rural livelihood projects for women in four provinces in northern Afghanistan resulted in meaningful changes in their socioeconomic conditions. ATR conducted the impact evaluation through a series of interviews, focus group discussions, and a 1,600 respondent survey with control and treatment households in order to identify high-impact interventions and inform policymaking and programming based on the rigorously collected evidence.

Rule of Law Portfolio — Impact Evaluation

ATR evaluated the impact of six of USIP’s rule of law projects on the relationship between the formal and traditional justice sectors in Afghanistan, the quality of governance, the level of accountability in the formal justice sector, the level of engagement in the Islamic legal community, the level of support for civil society in dispute resolution, and access to justice.
