Mixed migration evaluation
We were engaged to conduct an external evaluation of an agency working to enhance the protection of mixed migration flows in the Horn of Africa and Yemen.
Through desk research and interviews with key persons within and surrounding the agency in Djibouti, Ethiopia and Kenya, We provided an assessment of the work of the agency based on the OECD/DAC criteria.
The evaluation resulted in a profound understanding and assessment of the work of the agency, and provided forward looking analysis of how to improve their operations in terms of both meeting needs and optimizing use of resources.
With Sudan still ranking as the 138th state out of 162 countries in the Gender Inequality Index, millions of women face economic and political exclusion. These challenges are especially exacerbated amongst refugee women. As such, changing perceptions and attitudes, and ensuring vulnerable women and girls have access to opportunities is a long-term effort, which can only be achieved by involving local stakeholders and civil society organizations currently playing an active role in the development of their communities and their country.
Voluntas is expanding geographically. Earlier this year, we established a partnership with Sudan Polling and Statistics Center (SPSC). Dana Fuentes, a senior associate with Voluntas who until recently was based in Tunis, relocated to Sudan last month to support our expanding presence in the country. Dana will be supported by Nada Elamin. We will be opening an office in Khartoum in the coming months.
