Between 2011 and 2014, Sightsavers implemented a trachoma control project with Comic Relief funding of £700,000 in Marsabit, Kenya, focusing on the scale-up of the WHO SAFE strategy.
In addition to the four SAFE components, the project also adopted a fifth component focusing on the government of Kenya’s capacity building for sustainability at the end of the project.
The purpose of the evaluation is to assess whether the project attained the expected outcomes at the end of the Comic Relief funding. The latter was initially set to run from April 2011 until March 2014 but due to the time required to properly plan implementation at the onset of the project (nine months), a no cost extension was granted, extending the funding period until December 2014.
This evaluation reviewed the achievements done from April 2011 to December 2014 but against the targets set for the first three years of the five-year project. Publication date: February 2015
