The quantitative enumerators will work together with a group of voluntary enumerators to evaluate the programme impact with two thousand (2000) household members in in the MTBA districts, entailing five hundred (500) engagements per district. Each enumerator will be responsible for implementing hundred ten (110) engagements. A mixture of male and female interviewers is preferred, as we aim for same-gender engagements.
The qualitative interviewers will implement 40 peer review sessions in the MTBA districts, in which the qualitative interviewer supports 2 young persons to jointly reflect and interview each other (engaging with a total of 80 young people). This entails 10 peer review sessions per district and each interviewer will be responsible for implementing 10 peer review sessions. A mixture of male and female interviewers is preferred, as we aim for same-gender peer review sessions.
Oxfam, Bedari and Baanhn Beli, are implementing the MTBA programme (2016-2020) in Pakistan. The programme aims to combat the practice of child marriage and supports respect for young people’s right to health. Supporting the development of an enabling environment for girls and their families to engage in alternative pathways is a key strategy in the programme, aiming to realize a shift that supports social action against child marriage and in favour of the empowerment of young women and men.
The MTBA programme in Pakistan has set up a invested in an impact evaluation trajectory. Part of the impact evaluation will be an endline study. The main objective of the endline study will be testing whether there has been a positive or negative (significant) change in six of the seven intended outcomes of the MTBA programme. Moreover, the programme Learning Agenda directly informs the design of the questionnaire.
Part of this learning agenda is the need to understand how youth empowerment and joint action has been set up and achieved in the MTBA programme. To this end, the Endline Study will be accompanied by a small-scale qualitative study to provide nuance in our understanding of whether and how the young people that MTBA has engaged with directly have experienced a process of empowerment.
The endline will engage with (married and unmarried) girls aged 11-24 and their respective fathers or mothers in both the MTBA programme communities and so-called control communities of Muzaffargarh and Lodhran (Punjab) and Shikarpur and Larkana (Sindh).
The qualitative study will engage with 80 young people that have been directly engaged in the MTBA programme, either as Gender Action Learning System (GALS) Champion and/or Peer Educator. The 80 young people will be purposefully sampled, in which we seek a division of 20 young people per each of the 4 MTBA districts and a gender balance.
The assessment of the quotations will start with an assessment of the administrative criteria, mentioned in chapter 3.2. These criteria are all Knock-out criteria. That means that if these criteria aren’t met in your quotation, this quotation will be put aside and the award criteria of this quotation will not be assessed.
