  1. The Great Run Begins: Defining our Program Impact Groups 1st Meeting of the Impact Group Task Force (8 September 2008) CARE Ethiopia Program Shift: Impact Groups

  2. Task Force Role & Responsibilities • Guide a participatory process throughout the Country Office to define CARE Ethiopia’s program impact groups. • Capitalize on opportunities discuss with staff in various forums about the Program Approach • Be consistent and repetitive in our messaging • Constantly reflect and challenge ourselves to generate learning. • Recommend to SLT and PMT Program Impact Groups for endorsement. CARE Ethiopia Program Shift: Impact Groups

  3. 1st Meeting Objectives • Create common understanding of Program Approach and the process the CO is undertaking to define its program (s), and the Task Force members responsibilities and roles. • Introduce and create shared understanding of definitions on impact groups and associated concepts. • Define potential “candidate” impact groups. • Define process for identifying candidate impact groups between now and Sr. Staff Meeting (SSM) scheduled for 6-7 October.

  4. Definition of a Program A program is a coherent set of initiatives by CARE and our allies that involves a long term commitment to specific marginalized and vulnerable groups to achieve lasting impact at broad scale on underlying causes of poverty and social injustice. This goes beyond the scope of projects to achieve positive changes in human conditions, in social positions and in the enabling environment. CARE Ethiopia Program Shift: Impact Groups

  5. 8 Characteristics of a CARE Program • Impact Goal: specific group, broad scale • Analysis: UCP/V • Theory of Change • Coherent set of initiatives • Social Learning: Knowledge and Evidence • Broad movements for social change • Leverage & influence: financial and other resources • Accountability CARE Ethiopia Program Shift: Impact Groups

  6. Define specific marginalized vulnerable impact target group (s) that CARE Ethiopia will focus its programming efforts towards. Analysis of Underlying Causes of Poverty/ Vulnerability (UCP/V) of each impact target group. Define Goal for each program. Theory of Change defined for each program. Design the CO’s 3 to 5 Programs. Align CO current portfolio to the 3 to 5 programs. 30 November 2008 Beginning of March 2009 (completed) May 2009 (completed) September 2009 (completed) March 2010 (completed) By end of FY 2010 (completed) CO Action Plan A:Developing CARE Ethiopia’s Programs CARE Ethiopia Program Shift: Impact Groups

  7. Action Plan C: Learning • Learning Question: How to create a common understanding, sense of ownership and accountability to the program shift among CARE Ethiopia staff? • Learning Question: How to communicate, engage and involve strategic partners in the program shift? • Learning Question: What changes does Program Support services/functions need to realize to support the shift to a Program Approach? • Learning Question: How do we ensure risk management and analysis is an integral part of the development of our programs? CARE Ethiopia Program Shift: Impact Groups

  8. Impact Group • The population group upon which the program (CARE and its partners) aims to have a positive impact with a long-term commitment to overcome their underlying causes of poverty and social injustice. • As such, the impact group is at least at national level and is typically larger than the subset population directly impacted by an individual project or initiative at field level carried out by CARE or a partner.

  9. Sub-set Population • One of the disaggregated groups included in your impact group. • Program strategies or initiatives may need to be focused specifically on a subset population. • For example: women, children, youth; or a smaller representation of the entire impact group such as the chronic food insecure population in a region.

  10. Target Group • A group of people who are deliberately engaged in the program as a means for CARE and its partners to achieve impact on the intended impact group. While their lives may also be favorably impacted, it is the “impact group” and its subset populations to whom CARE’s commitment is long-term and focused. • Example of target group: to deal with issues of absence of women’s rights, groups of men will clearly be part of the target group. CARE Ethiopia Program Shift: Impact Groups

  11. Stakeholder Group • Any group of people who may affect (positively or negatively) or be affected by the program in some way. Stakeholders are not ‘targeted’ by activities or initiatives as target groups are. CARE Ethiopia Program Shift: Impact Groups

  12. Example: Impact Group Description • Extremely poor people in rural areas whose well being in political, social and economic realms as assessed by poor rural communities, obtain the lowest ranking (including people who communities tend to exclude from their ranking). Special attention will be paid to people who are trapped in a set of unequal power relations. • Women, whose rights and entitlements are denied throughout their life cycle by institutionalization of inequity between men and women. This affects their physical, social, economic, political condition and position as well as psychological wellbeing. CARE Ethiopia Program Shift: Impact Groups

  13. Candidate Impact Groups:Small Group Work Over the next hour: Step 1: Keeping in mind the following: national scope or a whole marginalized population group.... Identify a candidate impact group. For example: pastoralist women and girls, chronic food insecure households, OVC, survivors of violence/HTP, etc. CARE Ethiopia Program Shift: Impact Groups

  14. Candidate Impact Groups:Small Group Work (continued) Step 2 (concurrent with Step 3): Discuss the profile/characteristics of this group. List down who in this group is particularly marginalized and vulnerable. List the reasons why you include this group (criteria). For example: Your impact group may be OVC, but you decide the most vulnerable are those OVC ages 1 to 12 years living with women headed households for x, y, z reasons. For example: Your impact group may be pastoralist girls, but you decide the most vulnerable are married teenage girls. CARE Ethiopia Program Shift: Impact Groups

  15. Candidate Impact Groups:Small Group Work (continued) Step 3 (concurrent with Step 2): As you do Step 2, list the groups you exclude from the impact group and why (criteria). For example, your impact group may be chronic food insecure households, but you exclude households that are not socially marginalized. For example, your impact group may be pastoralist girls, but you exclude girls who have completed primary school education. CARE Ethiopia Program Shift: Impact Groups
