    Project description

    The Expanding the Pipeline Project funded by HILTI Foundation, seeks to increase the number of people reached through Hand in Hand’s four step model of enterprise development in Kenya and Tanzania.

    Expanding to new geographies, the project will provide 24,000 people living in poverty with the skills to establish their own enterprises.  The overall objective of the project is to reduce poverty and improve household wellbeing for 20,000 people in Kenya’s Nanyuki, Embu and Thika counties, and for 4,000 people living in the Arusha region of Tanzania.

    The project seeks to achieve the following key result areas.

    1. Profitability and resilience of member enterprises (income change)
    2. Social capital and financial resilience of target individuals
    3. Women’s economic empowerment

    The Baseline Evaluation

    HiH EA is commissioning a baseline study to provide a critical reference point on which to monitor and assess the program’s progress for assessing changes and impact. The evaluation intends to provide a basis for comparing the situation during and after implementation, and for making inferences as to the effectiveness of the project.

    The key objectives of the baseline evaluation include;

    • To provide reference point for the project indicators that will be used to inform program planning, determine progress and monitor project implementation.
    • To provide data against which the project will be monitored and evaluated for change.
    • Assess measurability of selected indicators for future measurement.
    • Shape expectations and communication strategies for the project
    • Draw recommendations to strengthen the evidence-base generation for the project

    HiH EA is seeking an independent evaluator, firm or individual to undertake this assignment comprehensively and to satisfaction. The assignment may be conducted concurrently by one firm present in the two countries or by separate firms from both countries. There is need for high coordination from the firms to increase comparability of data and its use in subsequent evaluations. The selected firm will have an opportunity to be procured again to undertake the end line if this assignment is satisfactorily accomplished.
