Description: Joint programme aimed to address one of the largest gaps in Georgia’s social protection system in order to transform the situation of persons with disabilities (PwDs) in the country. The overall strategy of the project was to address one of the key factors leading to social exclusion of people with disabilities in the society, i.e., the societal and institutional medical approach to people with disabilities, which considers disability as individual deficiency.
The purpose of the final evaluation was knowledge and evidence generation and high-quality lessons learned (learning). Evaluation evidence was judged using modified Organization for Economic Co-operation and OECD/DAC criteria of relevance, effectiveness, efficiency and sustainability, as well as equity, gender equality and human rights considerations.
Method used: desk research (including secondary data analysis), key informant interviews and focus group discussions.
Location: Eastern and Western Georgia (Batumi, Kutaisi, Zugdidi, Telavi, Akhaltsikhe, Gori, Tbilisi).
