The mid-term evaluation (MTE) was aimed to assess the performance and accountability of the AIM project implementation between October 2006 and August 2008. The MTE was conducted in two phases; the first between 1st and 22nd December, 2008 was on planning for the evaluation, followed by fieldwork which included 11 group interviews for IPs/IAs, and WI staff, 4 key informant interviews for WI/USAID staff, and 73 key informant interviews, and 13 FGDs for the project beneficiaries. The second phase of the evaluation was between 12th January and 16th February, 2009 and was focused on data translation, transcription, analysis and interpretation, and report writing and presentation of findings. The findings showed that in general, the project reached the targeted sub-groups of the population with specific needed services. The majority of OVC beneficiaries were able to read and write; most caregivers who were involved in IGA reported productive economic activities, and most CSWs who participated in the AB program reported behavior change in term of reduction in the number of sexual partners, increased use of condoms, and increased desire to transition to another trade. Strategies need to be fine-tuned to: (1) enlighten stakeholders on the actual aim of the Acada program in order to reduce over expectations on benefits and enlist more commitment in the long-run; (2) IGA recipients need more funds to improve their income generating capacity and stabilize them in the long-run; and (3) CSWs need additional financial or logistics support to give more of them the needed push to transition fully to their new chosen trade.
