Call for Expressions of Interest to review the programme

LSC Hubs is looking for an experienced evaluator to carry out a Mid-Term Review (MTR) of the project.

The results, furthermore, feed into the reflection on the project outcomes and results which are the basis for quality improvements and scaling. The findings and concrete recommendations of this MTR are additionally meant to feed into the reflection on the Theory of Change (ToC) of the project.
