Launch Of EHAHRDP’s External Evaluation Report On 25th November 2011

Between March and May 2011, a team of independent evaluators reviewed the work of the East and Horn of Africa Human Rights Defenders Project (EHAHRDP) since its formation and establishment in 2005. The main objective of this evaluation was to capture the impact and lessons learnt from EHAHRDP’s work. The evaluation report provides an assessment of the outcomes and impact that EHAHRDP has both contributed to and, where possible, can reasonably claim attribution, as well as offering evidence-based recommendations.

For over 5 years, EHAHRDP has benefited significantly from committed support of its partners and donors and would therefore like to share with you the outcomes of the report. Some of the recommendations to come out of the evaluation are already being implemented and we would like to call on your support towards acheiving full implementation of the recommendations.

A summary of the evaluation report can be downloaded here and the full report may be obtained by contacting the EHAHRDP secretariat at [email protected]
