The specific objective of the proposed evaluation will be to evaluate the progress made in terms of implementing the country strategies in delivering the “LIVELIHOODS” needs of communities that GOAL In India and its partners work with.

GOAL is an international humanitarian organization dedicated to alleviating the suffering the poorest of the poor. GOAL in India supports the overall mission of the organization by implementing poverty alleviation programmes in West Bengal, through partnerships with national NGOs with the objective of building the capacities of the poorest of the poor towards self-sustenance and self-determination, while simultaneously reducing their vulnerability to crises, neglect, abuse and exploitation. GOAL India is committed to eradication of poverty in all forms: social, economic, cultural, political etc. and has strategized investment in area based integrated programmes to address the multiple needs of individuals, households and communities in underdeveloped urban and rural areas of West Bengal.  

Under the framework of the Country Strategic Plan (2007-2011), GOAL India has been implementing the Model Villages programme with projects in the Sunderbans, Purulia, North Bengal and Murshidabad for the rural poor. The Programme for the urban poor is implemented through five projects- communities living in the and around the municipal dumps of Kolkata and Howrah, communities in settlements in the port and dock areas of Kolkata, migrant communities in brick kilns and sex workers and their children in Kolkata.

The GOAL India Country Strategic Plan (2007-2011), makes a commitment to evaluation which will focus on “the poverty impacts of the CSP 2007-2011”. To maximise the utility of such evaluations, the proposed evaluation needs to be carried out before the end of the current plan / programme period 2011.

This assignment will review, analyse and recommend the progress made by GOAL India and its partners in implementing the strategies proposed to achieve the specific objectives/outcomes of:
