Voices for Change Value for Money analysis

Location Nigeria

The Project

Voices for Change (V4C) created space and opportunities for adolescent girls and young women to grow, speak up and speak out. Engaging men and boys in the process, they hoped to create “new ways to change behaviour”, contributing to a Nigeria where every girl and boy, woman and man, achieve their full potential. LAMP provided support to V4C to strengthen internal processes for routine monitoring and reporting of VfM. This included revising templates for analysis, conducting training for staff and facilitating value for money assessments. The end-of-programme assessment conducted in 2017 included lessons learned on application of VfM during implementation.
