Save the date: final evaluation report

Research output: Book/ReportCommissioned report


This report presents an end of project evaluation of the Save the Date intervention. The Save the Date project is a joint initiative to address child marriage in Nepal. Between April 2015 and Support Centre/ Nepal Forum for Environmental Journalists, and Child Workers in Nepal, supported by three NGOs based in The Netherlands, Dance4Life, Free Press Unlimited, and Child Helpline International, delivered a child marriage intervention in targeted areas. The initiative was funded by The National Postcode Lotteries in Holland. Save the Date entailed three components; an educational program on SRHR and life skills for grade 5-9 students, and their communities, the broadcast of a radio drama portraying stories of child marriage and its consequences, and a helpline number for people to report cases of child marriage, or get support if involved in one.
The aim of this evaluation is to determine whether the combined activities conducted as part of the Save the Date project have resulted in improving young people and their communities’ knowledge, attitudes, beliefs, behaviour and practices in relation to early marriage. The evaluation will focus on understanding the results of the project against the objectives, outputs and outcomes proposed at the beginning of the project. Specifically, the evaluation will address change of understanding and behaviour in relation to child marriage in the selected communities where the project was delivered, and the radio soap broadcasted. The evaluation also includes a quick appraisal of the project’s design, implementation, and management, as an understanding of how the program was delivered will provide an insight into lessons learned and will also inform the final recommendations.
