In Turkey, Islamic Relief started to work in 2015 and implemented a number of food and health projects. The main office is located in Istanbul and there are two sub-offices in Gaziantep and Yayladağı. In Northern Syria two field offices are located in the governorates of Idleb and Aleppo. Since it began, the IR Syria Mission team has built partnerships and implemented projects on behalf of several donors and UN agencies including World Food Program (WFP), German Foreign Ministry, Disaster Emergency Committee (DEC), OPEC Fund for Emergency Development (OFID), UNOCHA, IR private donors, and others both in Syria and Turkey. IR will use its existing networks with the local authorities, partners and communities in Turkey to implement this project.
The proposed project seeks to improve the livelihood situation and subsequently the food security and health and overall living condition of 450 households (2,250 individuals) through agriculture, apiculture (beekeeping) and vocational skills development support. The project is primarily designed based on the results of the stakeholder consultation conducted by the Food and Agriculture Organisation (Turkey) as well as experience from the IR Turkey team. The project is direct contribution to the resilience pillar of Regional Refugee and Resilience Plan-Turkey. Whereby the targeted families will be able to improve the financial status and the purchasing power of the targeted beneficiaries which will be reflected positively on the dietary diversity and also be able to earn the income for a better and self-reliant society.
This evaluation has been commissioned by Islamic Relief Worldwide (IRW) in line with agreed internal policies (IR MEAL framework) and external policies of the donor. The purpose of this evaluation is to assess overall performance of the project with reference to the outcomes and outputs as well as draw lessons for future programme. This evaluation should take into consideration the OECD/DAC Evaluation Criteria to assess the performance of the project, as well as use the Core Humanitarian Standards (CHS) to evaluate the quality of the interventions and the aspects of accountability.
