Learning with Grantees

The learning and evaluation system of DRF/DRAF is based on several principles. One of those principles is for this area of work to be of mutual benefit to DRF/DRAF and the disability movement. It is essential that evaluation and learning data collected by DRF/DRAF is valuable to our grantees. The aim of the information provided here is to strengthen grantees’ advocacy and internal learning.

Annual Grantee Survey Feedback Reports

DRF/DRAF’s Annual Grantee Survey (AGS) is sent to organizations of persons with disabilities (OPDs) that have received DRF/DRAF funding. The purpose of the AGS is for DRF/DRAF to better understand grantee perceptions of our contribution towards grantee advocacy knowledge. The AGS Feedback Reports provide a summary of the survey findings specifically for grantees’ learning and knowledge.

Global Independent Evaluation

Every three to four years DRF/DRAF commissions an independent external evaluation. This allows the organization and its stakeholders to first learn from advocacy progress and achievements and, second, to provide adjustments to its strategy. To date, there have been four external evaluations. More information on the evaluations are available here.

The findings from the most recent global evaluation have been reconstructed specifically into a learning summary for grantees. The summary includes major findings as well as a short application section for grantees to apply the findings for their organizational and technical growth.

Regional Independent Evaluation

For the first time in 2019 DRF/DRAF commissioned an independent evaluation for a region of its engagement: the Pacific Island Countries. The findings from the evaluation that relate to grantees have been pulled out from the full evaluation report into a learning summary. There are short application sections association with each finding for grantees to apply to their organizational and technical growth.
