Evaluation: International Peacebuilding project (2009-2011) shows effects on political participation
In March 2006 medica mondiale started a 3 year project to encourage and support the political participation of women and girls in the peace process in Liberia, the Democratic Republic of Congo, and Afghanistan. Three years later, at the end of 2011, the independent expert Michaela Raab conducted a final evaluation of the project on behalf of medica mondiale. The results highlighted considerable differences in the three countries. In the Democratic Republic of Congo and in Afghanistan political participation was obviously strengthened. Success in Liberia was achieved in the first attempts to sensitise women to the possibilities and means of becoming active in and for women’s rights.
