Join our team
For over 35 years ADD International has been supporting some of the world’s most remarkable disability activists working on the frontline of discrimination. We give them and their organisations the tools and resources to build powerful movements for change; and we make sure their voices are heard by global leaders and people with the power to make real change.
In conjunction with others ADD International is currently implementing a 4-year project - Modelling Inclusive Pre-primary Education (MIPE) - which focuses on providing an opportunity for young children with disabilities to access inclusive, safe and appropriate pre-primary education across four districts.
The purpose of the final evaluation of the MIPE programme is for both accountability and learning – not only evidencing what has happened within the project, but also exploring how and why change has come about. The evaluation should, therefore:
- Assess and learn from the project achievements and challenges encountered during implementation.
- Identify key points of learning; and
- Provide recommendations that can be applied to future inclusive education programming in the country but also across ADD International country programmes.
The focus of the evaluation should be not so much on evidencing what has happened within the project, as on how and why change has come about.
