VIETSURVEY has been chosen to lead the evaluation team for the five-year bookkeeping project, which was an initiative to improve the financial literacy of farmer households in seven districts of six provinces, namely Ha Noi, Thai Nguyen, Yen Bai, Phu Tho, Nghe An and Ha Tinh. The project was funded by Oxfam and implemented by Hanoi University of Agriculture, Farmers’ Union and Plant Protection Stations.
This evaluation is expected to achieve the following objectives:
• Evaluate the progress made towards achieving the project goals set out in the grant to Hanoi University of Agriculture;
• To assess the strategic relevance of bookkeeping to the FLAIR program including positive, negative, intended and unintended results especially from the perspective of farmers (specifically women farmers);
• To draw lessons learned and to formulate recommendations for Oxfam and partners in terms of gender approaches, implementation arrangements and the utility of the bookkeeping model from the perspective of farmers vis-a-vis the program objectives.
The results of this evaluation will feed into the following decisions:
• FLAIR program approach to issues of gender and women’s empowerment;
• Future direction of bookkeeping – strengths and weaknesses and potential contribution to sustainable development of farmers
• Future financial support from Oxfam
The evaluation can be divided into four main periods: starting with desk review and tool development, then semi-structured interviews in Ha Noi, followed by field trips and finally data analysis, report writing and presentation at the end-of-project workshop. Throughout the evaluation process, the participatory approach has been strictly pursued, which involved the engaging all stakeholders.
