Background of the project
The PepsiCo Foundation is investing $18.2 million in CARE’s She Feeds the World (SFtW) program over six years to reach 5 million small-scale farmers and their families in six countries. SFtW is currently underway in Uganda, Egypt and Peru. SFtW is a programmatic framework that recognizes the vital role that women small-scale producers play in global food production by empowering women small-scale producers to access the resources, support, information, skills and confidence they need to invest in their farms, businesses, families and communities. As a result, women boost production and generate income that they use to send their children to school, feed their families more nutritious meals, keep their children healthy, expand their businesses and employ others, and build savings that help them during tough times.
Through The PepsiCo Foundation’s commitment of $2M to SFtW in Uganda, CARE is implementing a four-year project in western Uganda (Kyenjojo and Kyegegwa districts), aiming to reach 490,000 participants (120,000 direct and 370,000 indirect), of whom 70% are women. The goal is to improve food and nutrition security of poor rural households, with a strong emphasis on women small-scale producers. The project is being implemented in partnership with a local NGO called Joint Efforts to Save Environment (JESE) and local governments of Kyenjojo and Kyegegwa. Through SFtW Uganda CARE is addressing inequalities that exclude women’s agricultural participation and access through five outcome areas: supporting women’s empowerment; enabling nutrition improvement; strengthening women’s access to markets; improving women’s access to productive resources; and expanding benefits across communities. Restrictive social and gender norms and traditions hinder women’s full participation in decision-making processes in the project area. And women’s inadequate access to services limits their rights and opportunities to fully participate in the agricultural sector.
Objective and specific objectives of the evaluation
The SFtW project will end on the 31st May, 2022 and an external end of project evaluation is planned to take place during the final implementation phase of the project activities. As this is an end of project evaluation, its objective is to assess the extent to which the project has delivered against its expected results and to provide feedback for new strategic directions or implementation designs and delivery.
