By D.C. Klaver, C.B. Desalos, M. Hofstede, B. Prasad Mohapatra and A. Madaan

Abstract

This report describes the findings of the end line assessment of Rural Education for Development Society (REDS) in India that is a partner of ICCO. It assesses REDS’ contribution towards strengthening Civil Society in India for which it used the CIVICUS analytical framework. It is a follow-up of a baseline study conducted in 2012. Key questions that are being answered comprise changes in the five CIVICUS dimensions to which REDS contributed; the nature of its contribution; the relevance of the contribution made and an identification of factors that explain REDS’ role in civil society strengthening. The evaluation was commissioned by NWO-WOTRO, the Netherlands Organisation for Scientific Research in the Netherlands and is part of the programmatic evaluation of the Co-Financing System - MFS II financed by the Dutch Government, whose overall aim is to strengthen civil society in the South as a building block for structural poverty reduction. Apart from assessing impact on MDGs, the evaluation also assesses the contribution of the Dutch Co-Funding Agencies to strengthen the capacities of their Southern Partners, as well as the contribution of these partners towards building a vibrant civil society arena
