Outline India worked with Mathematica Policy Research, which is the MEL partner for Packard Foundation’s and Pathfinder International’s Population and Reproductive Health (PRH) program based in Bihar.
Our impact evaluation sought to gauge the knowledge, attitudes, and practices toward healthy timing and spacing of pregnancy, demand for and uptake of contraceptive services and family planning, access to contraceptive and maternal health services, and sexual health and counseling services provided for both married and unmarried adolescents in Mahadalit communities. Given, the sensitive nature of the topic and its chief respondents, a major component of the study was dedicated to thorough tool review, pre-testing and translation to the local language and dialect to ensure appropriateness and relevance, followed by obtaining all necessary ethical approvals from an Institutional Review Board (IRB) prior to data collection.
Outline India partnered with academicians from University of Pennsylvania, University of Toronto and University of Chicago to undertake a study on dowry trends among migrant, married men and its relationship to education patterns and property rights over the dowry. This study was undertaken in various commercial locations in Delhi/NCR.
Outline India was involved in descriptive data collection on education and dowry trends across 5 different educational groups among male, married migrants. The intent was to determine the relationship between educational investments by parents of the respondents to their wedding investments. Additionally, the study also aimed to gauge property rights associated with the dowry gifts.
As the data collection partner, Outline India
was responsible for developing the survey tool along with the client. Along
with these, Outline India also undertook the responsibilities of piloting the
survey tool, coding and translating the tools, recruiting and training field
workers, data collection, data cleaning and management.
Outline India prepared an Impact Assessment Report for one of the leading NGOs of the country. The organization works extensively in sectors of Health, Livelihood, Education, Disaster Management and Gender Based Violence reaching out to vulnerable and marginalized communities.
Outline India conducted a systematic review of project related data and reports to identify, analyse, and synthesize impact and outcome of the organization by consolidating information and analysis of 50 project interventions undertaken by the organization from 2013-14 to 2015-16. This report documents its overall achievements in India and long term impacts of interventions in the period of 2014-16. By collating the successes and failures, replicability and sustainability, the report provides a strong evidence base for the organization’s future programs, partnerships and advocacy, and also serves as an internal learning document.
