Youth Livelihoods

Purpose

Test and support the development of holistic approaches for enabling economic opportunities for disadvantaged youth

Why We Partnered

UMN will be the external evaluator and learning partner for The MasterCard Foundation’s Learn, Earn, and Save Program, which tests and supports the development of holistic approaches for enabling economic opportunities for disadvantaged youth. UMN will lead the design of a comprehensive monitoring, evaluation and learning framework to capture and share learning across three distinct yet complementary projects implemented by CAP, Fundación Paraguaya and Swisscontact. By prioritizing ongoing learning, UMN and The MasterCard Foundation will illuminate key success factors and challenges, and help to fill a significant knowledge gap in this arena. UMN will support The Foundation to monitor comprehensively, evaluate selectively, and learn continuously.
