Women Lead in Emergencies (WLiE) is a global CARE initiative implemented in five countries (Niger, Uganda, Philippines, Colombia, and Mali). In Niger, the initiative is implemented in the departments of Maine (Diffa Region) and Dungass (Zinder Region) with the respective support of Norway and the Sall Family Foundation.
This evaluation is part of the overall learning from the WLiE initiative and focuses primarily on the Diffa pilot site, where the program has been active the longest. The Zinder pilot will only be examined through documentation review. This evaluation is intended to be both a formative and summative evaluation and aims to produce solid evidence on the impacts of the initiative and to share knowledge with implementing actors and project stakeholders. The evaluation methodology used innovative qualitative approaches (the most significant change technique and Ladder of participation) combined with traditional methods of data collection and qualitative and quantitative analysis (semi-structured group and individual interviews, and a quantitative survey).
