In 2012, USAID through the Eurasia Foundation of Central Asia (EFCA) launched a two-year “Women`s Peace Banks” program to provide opportunities for women in the South of Kyrgyzstan in taking the lead in interethnic reconciliation and in promoting the role of women in peace building at the local level. The Program has been implemented in Osh and Jalal-Abad. During the program EFCA organized 16 Women’s Initiative Groups in Osh and Jalal-Abad that select social development projects proposed by local residents. EFCA provided small grants to the Initiative Groups and helped them find required co-financing for their projects from local authorities, private companies or other sources. This document is the performance evaluation of the project.

KRTI commissioned a series of case studies from independent, third party researchers to review a selection of activity clusters and document results and lessons learned. The purpose of these case studies is twofold. First, they are intended to provide an independent, third party perspective on the results of specific clusters of activities.

Researchers were asked to evaluate the validity of KRTI‘s programmatic assumptions and determine whether activities achieved their intended output and outcome objectives. The studies were also intended to evaluate the success of a group of small grants, aggregating outcomes to determine a broader programmatic result. In this way, the studies are a key component of the program‘s overall monitoring and evaluation effort.

Second, these case studies are intended to identify programmatic and strategic lessons learned and provide recommendations to inform future programming. As KRTI ends, initiatives by government, civil society, and the international community will continue to address the themes and sectors KRTI targeted. These case studies will serve as one means of contributing to future efforts. These case studies will also help to inform stabilization and political transition work more broadly within OTI and USAID.
