Client: The Donkey Sanctuary
Project: Evaluation of The Donkey Sanctuary’s Brick Kiln Work (2018)
The Donkey Sanctuary requested an evaluation of its work in the Brick Kilns in Egypt, India and Nepal that had been taking place for the past nine to fifteen years. One of the objectives of the evaluation was to understand what makes a good Brick Kiln project. This was a desk-based evaluation and included review of almost 900 documents, key informant interviews with multiple stakeholders in Egypt, India and Nepal as well as the UK. Outcome Harvesting questionnaires were applied, process mapping the project designs took place (as there was no Theory of Change) and qualitative comparative analysis was conducted on the collected evidence to identify the necessary and sufficient components of a successful Donkey Sanctuary Brick Kiln project. The result was an evaluation report that also set out the elements of a successful Donkey Sanctuary Brick Kiln project.
