Monitoring Outcome, Surveys for SPA Results Framework
Research Proposal Presentation
BRAC, the top ranked NGO of the world, has touched lives of millions of people in the world since its inception in 1972. An wide array of development activities has been funded through Strategic Partnership Arrangement (SPA) between BRAC, DFAT, and DFID. The major goals included maximising opportunities and expanding services for that 110 million people BRAC reaches and empower 20 million of the most underserved and disenfranchised women in Bangladesh. The present study is aimed capturing the coverage of BRAC’s development activities and the longitudinal impact on structural, agency, and relational level changes between 2017 and 2020. We will employ mixed methods to conduct this longitudinal study. Using a multistage random sampling technique we will select 32,000 households from 1024 villages and 64 urban slums encompassing all 64 districts of the country. We will employ semi-structured questionnaire interview technique to collect quantitative data at baseline and follow-up from the sample households. The analysis will focus on using different descriptive and inferential statistical tools. To qualitatively explore the factors and facts underlying the occurrence of the changes we will use FGDs, IDIs, KIIs, and informal discussions to collect data and analyse those by applying grounded theory approach/ thematic approach. The study will enable us understanding the current BRAC reach, outcome indicators of BRAC log frame and its overarching impact on national development paradigms.
