Evidence and Use

To guarantee the wide-scale success of any programme, collecting and analysing data becomes a poignant virtue. Introducing interventions and implementing modifications within Save the Children’s programmes have led to a larger success ratio through the Evidence & Use approach.

Save the Children was founded on the belief that every child has the potential to change the world; this is exactly what we aim to do through the Evidence & Use approach by understanding the impact of a programme and altering to ensure and sustain children’s overall growth and development.

Process of Evidence & Use includes

Research Studies

Gathering of evidence by documenting existing gaps, challenges and best practices, for which several appropriate research studies were commissioned by the Centre for Budget and Policy Studies. These studies use a mix of primary and secondary research techniques.

Primary Fieldwork

Primary Fieldwork involves a combination of interviews with management and staff of Early Childhood Care and Education (ECCE) centres, Anganwadi workers, parents, and key officials of the Integrated Child Development Services, as well as observations at ECCE centres, to derive information on various subjects associated with the various programme models in relation to their processes and contexts.

National Consultation Workshop

A National Consultation Workshop invites experts and others to gather additional information regarding programmes in the country and to vet the approach to the study them. Based on the inputs and suggestions received through the consultation, the programme models are further modified.

Setting-up of Advisory Committee

An advisory committee of external experts in research provides technical oversight under a particular programme. The committee helps in setting the direction of the programme for effective research design and guide us in establishing strategic linkages with key government departments and ministries.

Mixed-Method Approach

The mixed-method approach involves the use of a combination of quantitative and qualitative tools, mainly representative quantitative surveys, focus group discussions (FGDs), in-depth interviews (IDIs) with stakeholders and key duty bearers, and analysis of civil society interventions.

Internal and External Stakeholders

External stakeholders also guide and an advisory along with a committee of domain experts. Additionally, an advisory committee also reviewed the concept note, research framework, data collection tools, draft report and final reports of a project.

Report Dissemination

The component of ECCE will strengthen the quality of learning in public primary schools.

To improve Sepsis (PSBI) management in young infants by Testing of Simplified Antibiotic Regimens for Outpatient Treatment of Possible Serious Bacterial Infections (PSBI)

To generate evidence on the issue of safety of girls in public spaces
