Impact Assessment: Youth Employment Programmes in Sierra Leone (2007-2009)
This report details an independent impact assessment of 17 youth employment programs administered by UNDP/GoSL and funded by the Peacebuilding Fund (PBF), Irish Aid, and the Government of Norway. 21 researchers conducted the assessment over a two- month period beginning November 2010. Its geographic reach extended to 12 out of the 14 districts in Sierra Leone. Interviews, surveys and focus group discussions were conducted with staff members from 31 organizations and over 700 youth beneficiaries. The randomized sample size for the survey was sufficiently large so that the results accurately represent the population of project beneficiaries (10,299 youth).
