Voices for Change – Value for Money analysis

Nigeria

The Project

Voices for Change (V4C) created space and opportunities for adolescent girls and young women to grow, speak up and speak out. Engaging men and boys in the process, they hope to create “new ways to change behaviour”, contributing to a Nigeria where every girl and boy, woman and man, achieve their full potential. LAMP provided support to V4C to strengthen internal processes for routine monitoring and reporting of VfM. This included revising templates for analysis, conducting training for staff and facilitating Value for Money assessments. The end of programme assessment conducted in 2017 included lessons learned on application of VFM during implementation. Findings from the final year VFM analysis were published here.

Client Testimonial

The work was helpful as it provided essential data to report to DFID. The recommendations on what partners needed to do to improve reporting were right. The recommendations were good. The flexibility in juggling work when all the data wasn’t made available on time was appreciated.
