The Open Society Initiative of Southern Africa (OSISA) is a regional foundation that is part of a global network of the Open Society Foundations. Established in 1997, and based in Johannesburg, OSISA seeks to build vibrant and tolerant democracies, whose governments are accountable to their people. To achieve this, OSISA seeks to support people to influence public policies that assure greater fairness in political, legal, economic, social and cultural systems, and safeguard fundamental rights with a particular focus on marginalized groups. The pursuit of open society ideals underpins the work undertaken across each of the ten countries in which OSISA works: Angola, Botswana, DRC, Lesotho, Malawi, Mozambique, Namibia, Swaziland, Zambia and Zimbabwe.

1. Purpose and justification of the evaluation

OSISA provided grant funding to AIAS in line with the Economic Justice Programme’s mission which aims at contributing towards social justice in the countries of the region, for purposes of advocating for, monitoring, universal citizen access to socio- economic rights and human development needs.

In accordance to OSISA's practices, projects and programmes’ initiatives shall be evaluated at specific agreed upon time. Using key organisational documents, the evaluation will seek to:

I. Assess the extent to which OSISA funded projects to AIAS achieved their objectives and contributed to the achievement of AIAS overall organisational goals;

II. Evaluate the extent to which projects to AIAS have contributing to achieving the Economic Justice Programme’s strategic objectives;

III. Analyse the organisational structure, the operating and organisational governance environment and their implications on effective project implementation and organisational management. This will include an assessment on AIAS monitoring and evaluation strategy and the impact on continuous assessment of projects and operations ;

IV. Assess the extent to which AIAS work have effectively and pertinently impacted on the situation in the region specifically in addressing human rights and land reform issues in Zimbabwe;

V. Identify lessons learnt and provide recommendations on how the lessons can be deployed towards the continuous development of the organization.

And based on the findings, the evaluation exercise will provide cogent recommendations for future support to AIAS.
