New project | Collecting stories of change among women garment workers
ResultsinHealth is conducting the External Evaluation of Global Fund for Women’s initiative to end Gender Based Violence (GBV) in the Garment Industry in Bangladesh, Cambodia, India, and Vietnam.
From 2016-2021, Global Fund for Women, together with Laudes Foundation, Gender at Work, and NoVo, have been implementing this initiative to develop working and living environments for women garment workers where they are free from both sexual harassment and sexual violence. The project aims to empower these women to secure their workplace rights.
Using a mixed method approach, guided by the principle to meaningfully engage program participants in the evaluation, RiH will be documenting the program’s successes, challenges and lessons learned, offering recommendations that can be used to inform future initiatives.
One key aspect of RiH’s evaluation approach for this assignment, is to collect stories of change among the program participants – women garment workers – and other relevant stakeholders. This ensures the inclusion of their voices in the evaluation, shedding light on the actual changes that occurred in their lives due to project activities. Furthermore, gathering stories among this group helps identify what (did not) work(ed), and why, and potential (unexpected) secondary outcomes.
