Scope of good practices analysis
This good practices analysis focused on the assessment of the twelve Child Protection approaches and methods of KiRA projects. It covered projects implemented in Benin Republic, Togo, Mali and Cameroon by KiRA and its local partners. We included several components of the projects to better ascertain success factors, sustainability potentials as well as the bottlenecks. The Good Practices analysis aimed to document the approaches and methods that were useful and effective in each country’s operating context. It also served to document lessons learnt terms from failure and a deep understanding of limitation factors.
Methodology of good practices analysis
Mr Armel Ogunyi, Senior Evaluator joined the International Institute for Child Right and Development (IICRD) team to complete the assignment. The methodology considered the requirements for lessons learnt and good practices documentation.
By combining both primary and secondary data, the team emphasized on qualitative approaches to meet Kinderrechte Afrika eV (KiRA) expectations. Building on the twelve child Protection approaches implemented across the projects, we developed purposeful and qualitative data collection instruments. Methods used included KIIs, FGDs, River of Life (ROL) activities and Most Significant Change (MSC) analysis. In addition, the team completed the SWOT analysis for in-depth assessment of the twelve Child protection approaches.
Outcomes of good practices analysis
This assignment constitutes an essential decision-making aid for KiRA, the BMZ and the local implementing partners. The findings, conclusions and recommendations helped KiRA and its local partners to improve their interventions in the field. The knowledge generated from this assignment provided insights to the development of new partnerships and strengthening existing ones. Considering implementing partners’ context, the SWOT Analysis of the 12 Child Protection Approaches, would support the improvement of future programs.
