The evaluation used a mixed-method performance evaluation incorporating a comparison of baseline and endline quantitative data and a qualitative study.

The endline assessment compared information on food, income patterns, food consumption scores, household diet diversity scores, household hunger scale, the minimum dietary diversity of women, and the use of coping strategies.

The key objectives of the evaluation were to assess or identify the following:

  • To what extent the expected objectives and outcomes were achieved.
  • How effective the targeting process was during beneficiary selection?
  • The effectiveness of the approach in terms of addressing nutrition needs and the usefulness and appropriateness of awareness training.
  • The effectiveness of community volunteer committee and women's participation in them.
  • Innovations and good practices that others could learn from and replicate.

The evaluation presented comparative results on the following key outcome indicators:

  • Percentage of households with poor, borderline, and adequate food consumption score.
  • Average Household Dietary Diversity Score.
  • Prevalence of households with moderate or severe hunger.
  • Average minimum dietary diversity of women.
