AFFORD UK are looking for an independent Evaluator to provide a synthesis of the Diaspora Finance Initiative (DFI). The DFI programme is funded by DFID and Comic Relief and has been implemented since 2016. Its aim is to stimulate economic activity, support job creation and economic and social development in Africa (initially in targeted areas of Nigeria, Rwanda, Sierra Leone and Zimbabwe), as a result of increased and diversified diaspora finance, investments and volunteering.
The final evaluation will assess the programme’s achievements against plans and obligations to donors and participants; investigate the change that occurred as a result and to generate important information to drive learning and capture approaches, challenges and lessons of the programme. We therefore require the service of a qualified external evaluator (evaluating team) to conduct a summative evaluation and produce a report to be shared with the donors and to inform organisational learning.
