End of Project Evaluation: Empowering Women in Politics (EWIP) Program

  1. Introduction

The Oslo Center was founded in 2006 and has developed into a focused and professionally strong democratic support organization focusing on supporting democratization processes. The Oslo Centers' vision is to support democratic systems that are responsive to citizens' needs and respect their meaningful participation, human rights, and human dignity. The Oslo Center's approach to democracy assistance is by working with local partners and providing technical assistance to promote and enhance democratic practices by strengthening governance, political and government institutions, and civic spaces.

The Oslo Center works in Kenya to promote democracy through the provision of technical expertise to institutions of democracy and governance such as political parties, parliament, regulatory bodies such as the election management bodies, and the registrar of political parties.

  1. Background

Empowering Women in Politics (EWIP) started in 2019 and has finalized its fifth year of implementation. EWIP’s objective is to contribute to increased participation and influence of women in politics so that women can contribute to democratic change in politics and society. EWIP is based on two main strategies: on one hand strengthening the capacities and the confidence of women active in politics, and on the other making the management of political parties and other stakeholders more receptive to the specific needs of women.

The Oslo Center (TOC) is therefore recruiting a consultant or a legal entity (hereafter: the “Evaluator”) to conduct an end-of-program evaluation that will take place in December 2023 and January 2024.

2.1 Program Background

The program has two main outcomes:

  • Outcome 1: EWIP Alumnae demonstrate increased capacities.
  • Outcome 2. Political parties and other influential actors have taken action to support women in politics.

2.2 Target Groups

The program target groups correspond to the different outcomes. The first output corresponds to EWIP Alumnae while the second output focuses on party leadership and gender champions within political spaces.

2.3 Summary of Program Activities

The program activities were organized along the outputs and included.

  • Training of EWIP alumnae.
