MID TERM REVIEW OF THE PROJECT

MID TERM REVIEW OF THE PROJECT “Strengthening Community-Led Accountability to Improve Service Delivery in Sierra Leone (SABI)”.

SABI has built on the importance of voice and participation and is establishing a sustainable relationship approach of accountability, cooperation and collaboration between service providers, Local Government Authorities and communities to address the issues that they own and have power to influence and change. SABI has been very effective at community level in awareness raising, enabling target citizens to become aware of their rights, roles and responsibilities and understand the pathways to solving issues. They have gained confidence in relating with other actors both horizontally and vertically, and have started to work together with local service providers, District Councils and District MDAs in addressing and solving service delivery issues. The embedding of gender equality and social inclusion priorities in SABI activities has made a significant difference in how especially women and persons with disability (PWDs) can provide a valuable contribution, including leadership, to improved service delivery. Youth are participating actively, but there is little evidence of whether they are listened to or make a difference.

SABI conducted a mid-term review (MTR) half way through the lifetime of the programme from February – March 2019. The primary purpose of the MTR was to assess the extent to which the SABI Theory of Change (ToC) is being realised, its relevance and underlying assumptions. Specifically, assessing: i) the extent to which the SABI design and approach is creating change as envisioned in the ToC, the achievements, challenges and lessons to date from SABI implementation of activities and ii) focusing on sustainability of both the intervention, and the changes brought about. In the assessment of these areas, the MTR provides succinct recommendations for the remainder of the programme.
