My job was to plan an evaluation and write a final report for the Luapula Foundation that would be used when applying for future funding opportunities. The project was a qualitative study was organized targeting caregivers of OVC in four districts of Luapula Province that had been trained by Luapula Foundation in conservation farming. Over five weeks, a total of four focus groups were held with the caregivers and one-on-one interviews were conducted with OVC and Agricultural Extension Officers, who serve as a governmental partner in this program. It was found that the program had great potential to expand, eventually reaching all seven districts in Luapula Province. In addition to organizing and conducting the study, I was able to assist with the writing of concept papers to solicit funding for the expansion and scale up of the conservation farming program.
