Our technical assistance work relies on collaboration with local partners. One key aspect of this project is to build the capacity of local organizations and/or governments to sustain the work over time. Local partners also help us contextualize the program to meet local needs and to ensure cultural sensitivity in the given environment.
Room to Read’s Life Skills Assessment is designed to measure girls’ life skills learning and development. The tool helps Room to Read ensure our programs are leading to the results intended, and deepen our understanding of the program’s impact across countries. Ultimately, Room to Read will use findings of these assessments to inform our own program design and also to provide invaluable information about best practices in life skills programming and measurement to governments, stakeholders, and the global education community.
Thanks so much for your comment on our proposed project! Our timeline for the project is dependent on when funding is confirmed. We could kick off a project with a planning period as early as Q4 2017 and envision a two-year project implementation plan beginning Q1 2018.
Please do let me know if you have other questions.
