Final Evaluation for Start Life project Towards the Rehabilitation and Social Reintegration of Prisoners to Society with a Focus on Female Prisoners

Drosos Foundation is supporting the Project “Start Life” to target a marginalized group of
released prisoners by partnering with Life Foundation for Development and Community
Reintegration, to implement a 3-year project that started in August 2016 and concluded in
September 2019. This is an executive summary of the outcome evaluation report submitted by The
Community Hub, after conducting an assessment and review of lessons learned for the project.
This is a summary of the achievements rendered by the project by a review of targets placed and
actual results that were realized; its impact on beneficiaries and stakeholders; main findings in
correlation to the evaluation criteria and a set of recommendations for Life Foundation for
Development and Community Reintegration and Drosos Foundation. While this summary is a
short version of the concerned evaluation report, the final evaluation report itself should be referred
to for a comprehensive review and assessment of the aforementioned project.
The assessment used mixed methods, quantitative and qualitative, to gather data. A desk review
to all project documents and reports and a review of literature on national and international models
was conducted to start the assessment and design the evaluation tools. Quantitative data was
gathered through a questionnaire from beneficiaries, and qualitative data were gathered through
semi-structured interviews with specialists and project staff, focus groups with beneficiaries and
their families, and an Appreciative Inquiry workshop and group discussion with staff. The
evaluation sample is 83 released prisoners, 17 family members of released prisoners, 13 project
staff, 4 specialists who are managing 3 projects that are working on the rehabilitation and
reintegration of prisoners and released prisoners in Egypt, from Life Foundation for Development
and Community Reintegration, United Nations Office of Drugs and Crime (UNODC) and Children
of Female Prisoners Association (CFPA). Results from data collection reveal the achievements of
the project as follows:
