The purpose of this evaluation is to better understand the effectiveness of the disaster aid provided by CCF in Nepal. This information will be used to provide greater accountability to CCF stakeholders, including aid recipients, as well as to guide future organizational actions as the relief and rebuilding processes continue. Secondarily, the purpose of this research is to investigate the relationship between small-scale aid organizations such as CCF and larger International Non-Governmental Organizations (INGOs).
A learning-oriented evaluation will be used to analyze what aspects of CCF’s earthquake relief projects worked, what was missed, and how CCF’s involvement can effectively transition from providing immediate and emergency assistance, to supporting various groups and communities in their process of rebuilding. Additionally,
an accountability-oriented evaluation1 will assess the effectiveness of past aid provided by CCF in realizing the needs of Nepalese earthquake victims, so as to determine the organization’s accountability to those who financed its work, those it seeks to aid, and other humanitarian actors.
By analyzing both the learning-oriented, and accountability-oriented evaluations, CCF’s work and model will be examined in the larger context of the overall relief process which has taken place in Nepal. The combination of this analysis along with similar evaluations of other humanitarian aid perspectives has the potential to demonstrate how CCF can become more efficient and effective. Should this project prove successful, CCF and this research have the potential to serve as models for other small organizations who also seek their place in the overall system and community of humanitarian aid. Likewise, this research may have the ability to demonstrate the importance to larger INGO’s of the niche occupied by small-scale organizations, and thus reveal the potential for mutually beneficial partnerships.
