Bernard Van Leer Foundation Historical Case Studies in Peru

AISE Consulting is supporting the Bernard van Leer Foundation (BvLF) to reflect on and capture its impact in Peru over 40 years, Peru is a country where it has recently phased out most operations.

  • Creating a historical summary of Bernard Van Leer’s work to support institutional memory as it enters a new strategic period.
  • Recognizing and celebrating key partners who worked together with the Bernard Van Leer Foundation to achieve a better future for babies and toddlers growing up in Peru
  • Incorporating the voice of caregivers, service providers and to an extent, children themselves into the stories that the Bernard Van Leer Foundation is telling.

World Health Organisation Protocol on Female Genital Mutilation PCC Scale-up

WHO in partnership with research institutions in Guinea, Kenya and Somalia/ Somaliland concluded a multi-site implementation research study on FGM. The study tested the effectiveness and implementation strategy of a person-centered intervention package targeting health workers working in antenatal care services (ANC) in primary health facilities. The study found ANC providers in the intervention arm to have significantly improved knowledge, skills and delivery of a FGM prevention counseling technique to their clients. Their clients in turn were significantly more likely to be strongly opposed to FGM, show lower intention to perform FGM to their daughters and higher willingness to be actively engaged in FGM prevention efforts. In addition, this person-centered approach in FGM counseling was found to be feasible, acceptable and appropriate, important considerations for its scale- up.

AISE Consulting is supporting the WHO to develop a research implementation protocol focused on scaling-up activities in Guinea and Kenya.

UNESCO and KIT (Royal Tropical Institute) evaluation of the Our Rights, Our Lives, Our Future (O3) Programme

The UNESCO O3 program Is a global initiative aimed at promoting comprehensive sexuality education (CSE) for young people around the world. In Nigeria, the program has been implemented in Nigeria with case studies focused on Lagos public schools, with the goal of educating adolescents and young people on various aspects of sexuality and reproductive health. As part of the implementation process, an evaluation program was conducted to assess the impact of the program on the target population. This post will explore the evaluation program and its findings.

AISE consulting was contracted by KIT (Royal tropical Institute in Amsterdam) to conduct the evaluation of the 03 program in Nigeria. The evaluation was designed to assess the effectiveness of the CSE curriculum in improving the knowledge, attitudes, and behaviors of adolescents and young people regarding sexual and reproductive health. The evaluation program involved a combination of quantitative and qualitative methods, including surveys, focus groups, and interviews.

The findings of the evaluation program were quite positive. The program was found to have a significant impact on the knowledge and attitudes of the students who participated in it. Students who received the CSE curriculum were found to have a better understanding of various aspects of sexual and reproductive health, including contraception, HIV/AIDS prevention, and gender-based violence. They also exhibited more positive attitudes towards sexual and reproductive health issues, with a greater willingness to seek information and support when needed.

Gender and Diversity Inclusion Assessment for TRIAS Brussels

In late 2021, our consultancy supported the TRIAS Diversity and Inclusion assessment using a utilization-focused approach to ensure that its works and this functional process is reflective of the needs of its clients. We applied the IDEAS framework used by TRIAS to guide its diversity and inclusion strategy. AISE Consulting also sought to assess TRIAS ‘work to support inclusion within the organization’ as a journey, and situated the assessment process within a spectrum, to show institutional progress since the inclusion journey began. For this project, we engaged with the TRIAS Brussels staff to identify, from a collective point of view, ‘where the organization wants to be’ and ‘what to do to get into the next level’. Within this framework, the assessment identified advancements and opportunities related to Inclusion at TRIAS.
