This is the Lesson Learning report for the Innovation Round Three, Tanisha, project implemented by Save the Children in Barisal District.
A similar process has been followed during the preparation of each report. Chapter One was drafted to summarise the narrative of the project from design and inception through to completion. This chapter draws on the initial Project Memoranda as well as the output of independent reviews conducted during the course of the project. Tanisha was asked to submit relevant documents to inform this chapter and the chapter was reviewed and endorsed by the NGO project staff prior to finalisation. Chapter Two reports the output of an Impact Survey conducted according to a standard methodology for all Innovation Fund projects. This survey was undertaken by trained enumerators adopting a similar methodology to that used for the Scale Fund CMS3 instrument. The baseline census (CMS1) is used for before and after intervention comparisons. The Conclusion is a comparison between final project achievements and the original logical framework. The Annex includes a summary of the project exit strategy, a brief sub project financial profile, a summary of the project’s issues of scalability and overview tables of the revisions in the innovation and in beneficiary selection criteria.
