Case 8

Title:  Application of Multiple Rigorous Methods in Impact Evaluation: Experience from BRAC ELA Programme in Uganda and Tanzania

The Empowerment and Livelihood for Adolescent Girls (ELA) program is a BRAC-led initiative to promote the social and economic empowerment of adolescent girls and young women in low income countries (Uganda and Tanzania). These programs are seen as pilots in which to experiment with innovative approaches, measure the results, and provide evidence for possible scaling-up of similar interventions in the future. Because the evidence on what works in facilitating the transition of adolescent girls and young women to productive work is limited, impact evaluations are an essential part of BRAC’s initiative. The impact evaluation is based on rigorous quantitative and qualitative methods (RCTplus) to measure the effects of the intervention on the socio-economic well-being of adolescent girls and their households. We believe that such combination of approaches can bring evidence from the highly quantitative results (RCT) together with other qualitative aspects of the evaluation program. At the end of the three year, a core set of indicators as well as lessons learned will have been developed across countries, providing invaluable evidence as to what works, and from whom, for promoting the social and economic empowerment of adolescent girls
