Visual Impact assessment and evaluation

Facili2transform conducts impact assessments and evaluations of social-economic and development based projects through visual storytelling. A key principle is listening and putting People first! Facili2transform works on a structured and participatory way aiming to listen to stories and assess behavior change, relevance, sustainability and impact of projects involving all relevant actors. Regularly the People First Impact Method (PFIM) and Most Significant Change (MSC) techniques in combination with participatory video are applied in evaluations. 

Simon Koolwijk conducted in partnership with local evaluators, impact assessments, mid-term reviews and evaluations in Africa (Ethiopia, Kenya,  Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Uganda and South Sudan), Western Europe (The Netherlands, France and Germany),  Eastern Europe (Armenia, Moldova and Georgia), Middle East (Egypt and Palestine) and Asia (India).
Simon is specialized in conducting impact assessments and evaluations  in the domains of;
  • Gender and diversity;
  • Humanitarian Aid;
  • Climate change, bio-diversity and environment;
  • Social accountability and good governance;
  • Social services, eg.  health care, education, agriculture, water and sanitation.

Mid-term review social accountability in Sierra Leone and evaluation humanitarian response program in Nigeria

Between February and April, 2019, I conducted two evaluations in Western Africa. The first one was a mid-term review (MTR) assessing the Theory of Change (ToC) of a Social Accountability and Building Inclusion program taking place nationwide in Sierra Leone. This program aims to improve the quality of public service provision (health, education and water supply) by involving citizens. During the evaluation more than 200 actors were interviewed about the progress of the project. 
This MTR was followed by an evaluation of a humanitarian response program in the north-east of Nigeria. There the impact and results were assessed of an ‘unconditional cash program’ and an intervention preventing the malnourishment of children. Both interventions aimed to help marginalized groups and internally displace people(IDPs), who had suffered from food shortages and civil war in the north-east of Nigeria.

Work done on a well organized way, within a limited timeframe!

Simon was hired by us to carry out an evaluation of an emergency response program in Nigeria. Time and resources for the evaluation were limited, but Simon managed to get the work done within the given time frame and he was able to produce a good qualitative report about the results achieved in the programme. Simon is well organised. As a professional facilitator he knows which methodology to use to get the information he requires to answer the clients questions. We will certainly use him again for similar assignments and recommend him to others.
