​The Social Development programme is undertaking an independent external evaluation of Restless Development’s Youth Empowerment Programme, covering the period 2010-13.

The Youth Empowerment Programme aims to empower young Karimojong to lead the development of their communities, breaking the cycle of conflict and poverty to build a peaceful future.

This programme aims to achieve the following outcomes:

1.       To increase by 20% the proportion of out-of-school youth in rural Karamoja communities with improved livelihoods opportunities by August 2013.

2.       To increase by 25% the proportion of in-school and out-of-school youth in rural Karamoja communities participating in conflict resolution decision-making processes by August 2013.

3.       To increase by 50% targeted community stakeholders’ capacity to deliver youth-friendly interventions and to support youth by August 2013.

4.       To increase by 20% the proportion of in-school and out-of-school youth in rural Karamoja communities adopting safe sexual practices by August 2013.

The evaluation of this programme will aim to:

·         Enable understanding of what difference the Youth Empowerment Programme has made.

·         Enable understanding of how the Youth Empowerment Programme has made that difference, i.e. understanding the key success factors for achieving long-term change for particular groups in different contexts.

·         Capture what has been learnt and facilitate a process of critical analysis to celebrate success, challenge assumptions and ways of working, and explore areas that have been difficult.

·         Enable sharing of evaluation findings with all stakeholders, including Youth Empowerment Programme participants.
