Universalia has been contracted by the MasterCard Foundation to conduct the mid-term review of the YouthSave Initiative, a landmark global study on sustainable delivery of savings services to youth in four countries across three continents (Africa; Asia and Latin North America). The aim of the mid-term evaluation is to take stock of the program to date and compare it to its original intent. YouthSave involves the rollout of savings products in financial and services providers in the four project countries, to 170,000 low-income youths aged 12 – 18 years. Universalia is responsible for: i) capturing and documenting the progress that has been made relative to YouthSave’s original goals, workplans and learning agenda; and ii) facilitating strategic reflection on work that has been completed, and the effectiveness and impact of the collaborative learning approach. This process involves: the design and implementation of the mid-term evaluation, including: preparation of the data collection tools; developing the inception report and workplan; data collection and analysis; presentation of preliminary findings; and production of the evaluation report. A central component of this process is collaboration with key project stakeholders involved in project design and implementation at various levels.
