Afghan Educational & Cultural Grants
InterMedia is conducting a nationwide evaluation of educational and cultural grant activities across Afghanistan, ranging from English language, arts and media training, to youth and sports programs, to cultural heritage and library grants. The multiphase evaluation assesses the extent to which the grants are helping to increase engagement with Afghans, especially youth, and to strengthen Afghan civil society based on four key factors: knowledge and skill acquisition, positive change in attitudes and behaviors, increased engagement and linkages, and satisfaction with grant activities.

InterMedia conducted an impact assessment of radio programs in Chad and Niger produced under USAID’s Peace through Development Program and aimed at reducing conflict, violence and support for terrorist activities. The assessment looked at the extent to which exposure to the radio programs influenced attitudes and behavior among specific target groups, and provided important feedback for improving program content and relevance.
