The objectives of MALUMAT program run by MercyCorps Turkey is to raise access to information on available services by vulnerable Syrian refugees and host community members, support service delivery by local authorities and civil society organizations to vulnerable refugees and host community members, to conduct community-based services for refugees and host communities through youth participation.
IDEMA has conducted the external evaluation of the program and analyzed the quantified impact of MALUMAT services as well as the progress made towards achieving impact and outcome targets. IDEMA has performed target-group meetings on the field with the beneficiaries and surveyed them. Also, semi-structured interviews with the stakeholders based on the project activities have been facilitated by IDEMA.
All the quantitative and qualitative data assembled have been analyzed by experts and a final external evaluation report has been prepared that identified what was successful and what was not along with recommendations for program improvement.
