Like in many Middle Income Countries (MIC), the Eastern Europe (EE) Country Offices (COs) have been facing funding constraints in recent years. This led to inability of COs to meet children’s needs through traditional way of working i.e. through traditional CO operating model. While the Eastern Europe COs (Albania, Armenia, Georgia, Kosovo and North-West Balkans) were known for the quality of their programmes, they struggled to respond to the issues facing the most vulnerable children not addressed by other actors. At the same time, the countries in EE were characterized by stronger civil society actors and State authorities committed to address children’s issues. It was evident that the way of working and the role of SC in MIC context should be redefined to effectively respond to children’s needs.
The purpose of the assessment is to document and highlight the impact of APM on EE COs, children and communities we serve. The overall objective is to assess to what degree EE Advocacy and Partnership Model is strengthening Eastern Europe COs capacity to achieve results at scale, deliver benchmark- quality programming to children and their families, strengthen duty-bearers’ capacity to meet their obligations and support civil society to hold duty-bearers to account
