Via Formative Evaluation

This report is a mid-term evaluation of the Via Programme, a five-year programme funded by the Mastercard Foundation and implemented by the International Youth Foundation (IYF). The overall goal of the programme is to improve economic opportunities for youth, by adjusting the collective behaviour of the Technical Vocational Education and Training (TVET) system – including government, employers, civil society, and youth. The programme is implemented in Tanzania and Mozambique.

The evaluation asks two key questions. Firstly, what change has IYF created in the TVET and market system? Secondly, how did this change happen, with reference to the implementation approach and internal systems of IYF? The aim of the evaluation is to provides information to inform and improve the programme.
