Lebanon has been facing multiple crisis since 2020; from socioeconomic deteriorations, to the COVID-19 pandemic, and the Beirut Blast. To cope, households have resorted to negative coping mechanisms which include: forced/early marriage of girls, children partaking in worst-forms of child labor, increase use of corporal punishment with children, and domestic abuse.

To address this, Levitum is implementing a 24-month project that targets vulnerable boys and girls in the governorates of Mount Lebanon and Baalbeck-Hermel. The project aims to respond to the educational and protection needs of 2,500 children. Caregivers, educators, and members of the community are also targeted through awareness raising sessions that will provide them with the skills required to ensure the protection and wellbeing of children.



General objective: Strengthen protection mechanisms for vulnerable children in Lebanon through an integrated educational approach

Specific objective: Respond to the protection needs of vulnerable children among refugee and host communities in Mount Lebanon and Bekaa by enhancing accessibility to quality education

  • Outcome 1: Improve access of girls and boys not enrolled in school (preschool and school age) to the formal education system
  • Outcome 2: Provide retention activities (homework support sessions) for vulnerable Lebanese and Syrian refugee girls and boys at risk of dropout
  • Outcome 3: Raise awareness and improve knowledge of caregivers, community members, and school staff on child protection mechanisms

So far the project has reached 2,200 children and 1,150 caregivers, educators, and community members.



The purpose of this consultancy is to conduct a final evaluation of the above project. The evaluation will assess the project performance towards achieving its mandated outputs and outcomes over the operational period. The review will explore the strengths and weaknesses of the project. It will highlight all factors influencing the effective and efficient implementation of the interventions and their contribution towards the realization of the programme outcomes and outputs. Based on the analysis it will draw conclusions regarding the outcomes and outputs. As such, the evaluation will also identify lessons learned, good and promising practices. It will then formulate recommendations for future projects.

The project will need to be evaluated by utilizing the OECD DAC criteria (relevance, effectiveness, efficiency, impact, coherence, sustainability), as well as inclusion.

In addition, the final evaluation will assess the following:

  • To what extent did the programme achieve its objectives and the expected outcomes? Determine if the project has achieved its results and assess whether the outputs led to the expected outcome;
  • The evaluation will assess the results and impact of the programme and validate the performance/results framework.
  • Document challenges and lesson learnt, and outline key forward looking priorities to continue accelerating efforts to improve accessibility to quality education
  • To what extent did the Programme achieve its overall objectives?
  • Whether the project activities were appropriate for its context?
