SAIH started its engagement in the Atlantic Region of Nicaragua in 1980. For SAIH, the programme in Nicaragua is part of a long history, and among the biggest in terms of financial aid. SAIH is commissioning a consultant for an evaluation of the work in the region.

SAIH expects results on impact level to be found as a result of the long-term engagement in the education sector in the Atlantic region of Nicaragua, and wants to document these results on a programme level. SAIH has no immediate plans for ending the engagement, however, we want an independent opinion on the sustainability of the organizations, and advise for future action to strengthen sustainability.

The evaluation also can give SAIH and the partners advise for improvement and further programme development.

Former evaluations have been on a partner and project level. In this evaluation, we want to look at SAIH's long-term engagement in the region on a program level. The following aspects are important:
