Social Solutions leads the Coordinating Implementation Research to Communicate Learning and Evidence (CIRCLE) Project, which will implement a four-year Developmental Evaluation (DE) of USAID Boresha Afya Project in Tanzania
. The Boresha Afya project aims to support the Government of Tanzania to increase access to high quality, comprehensive, and integrated health services, particularly for women and youth. The project is implemented in three zones of Tanzania, namely Lake/Western Zone, North/Central Zone, and Southern Zone.
Developmental Evaluation practice involves (1) embedding an evaluation team with project implementers, (2) providing real-time feedback to intended evaluation users, (3) using systems- and complexity thinking, and (4) supporting inclusive learning and timely decision making for program improvement toward meeting its objectives. Flexible evaluation design along with strong stakeholder engagement and knowledge management are essentials to the success of DE.
The CIRCLE Project seeks three experienced Zonal Developmental Evaluatorsfor coordinating and implementing the DE activities in the respective Boresha Afya project zones. The primary responsibilities include implementing data collection and analysis activities per the DE design, providing continuous feedback to intended evaluation users to support timely decision making, and tracking learning and adaptation milestones in the project.
Zonal Developmental Evaluators
will be embedded with Boresha Afya partners, one in each of the respective zones: Lake/Western Zone (Mwanza
), North/Central Zone (Tabora), and Southern Zone (Iringa
). The specific location in each zone may change based on emerging evaluation priorities. Candidates’ flexibility regarding site for embedding is highly desired. Zonal Developmental Evaluators can expect up to 30-50% time for domestic travel, primarily within the respective zone, but also to include Dar es Salaam and other locations.
