The Oslo Center 

End of Project Evaluation: Empowered Youth Generation in Governance Project

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.

2. Background
The Empowered Youth Generation in Governance (EYGG) project seeks to promote the meaningful
participation of youth in decision-making by advocating for accountability and promoting responsive
government structures. The activities focus on enhancing the capacity of youths, establishing accountability hubs, and creating a bridge between the youth and county governments to promote accountability and service delivery.
The project worked closely with Youth Leagues from seven main political parties, the Kwale Youth Assembly, and the Nandi County Youth Network and established an 11-member accountability hub task force that provided stewardship to the project implemented in two counties namely Kwale and Nandi.
The project worked to strengthen youth engagement in the governance process through social accountability frameworks that will enhance promoting accountability and better service delivery.
The Oslo Center (TOC) is therefore recruiting a consultant or a legal entity (hereafter: the “Evaluator”) to
conduct an end-of-project evaluation that will take place in November and December 2023.
