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 LEDRIZ 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.

According to the grant agreement and OSISA's practices, there shall be an evaluation of the project within three months of the completion of the project. The evaluation will seek to:

I. Make a general assessment on the extent to which support to LEDRIZ has achieved its objectives as fully outlined in the contract between OSISA and LEDRIZ;

II. Assess the extent to which LEDRIZ has been able to identify and fulfil a particular niche in the region and to respond to the need identified through implementing the project that is relevant, appropriate and avoid duplication of other initiatives;

III. Assess how effective has LEDRIZ been in working with and responding to the needs of other stakeholders and organisations or networks conducting work in a similar field;

IV. Assess the extent to which LEDRIZ has been able to capture the intended and unintended contextual narrative as a result of the project implementation and draw critical lessons for future work;

V. Make recommendations for LEDRIZ future work taking into account its competencies, positioning and niche. The recommendations would detail proposed ongoing initiatives with OSISA if these are appropriate, based on the assessment of the work that has already taken place and that is currently taking place.

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