Join the LGI Evaluation Team

Apply today to participate in our LGI Plus: Capacity Building for Evaluation in Food Security! Limited funding opportunities available!

In December 2013, LWR received funding through Save the Children from the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) Technical and Operational Performance Support (TOPS) to expand LWR’s Learning for Gender Integration (LGI) projects. With this funding, LWR will hold remote reflection sessions with domestic and international staff working on LGI projects, a mid-term evaluation workshop and panel discussions and presentations on LWR’s learnings from the three LGI model projects and the process of institutionalizing a gender-integrated approach to programming. These plans are made possible with support from the American people, delivered through USAID.

LWR’s findings will contribute evidence-based data to the food security community’s body of knowledge around gender-integrated agriculture programming.

You can apply to be part of the LGI  Evaluation Team, consisting of LWR staff and staff from other TOPS member agencies. Candidates are sought from headquarters-based and in-country-based staff of peer organizations. The evaluation will use Photovoice (PV) and Most Significant Change (MSC) methodologies to evaluate LWR’s LGI projects.

Candidates will be a part of an evaluation team.
