The Voice to the People (V2P) project piloted for two and a half years (July 2013- January 2016) in Anambra state with the aim of improving social, economic and political well-being, as well as better quality service delivery in the state. The project was implemented in 48 communities across 12 Local Government Areas (LGAs).
Through the period of intervention, the project recorded instances of community-driven development through the demand for their rights and accountability of the government. The end of the pilot phase of the project provides an opportunity to holistically determine the effects of the project on the people as well as service delivery in the state, hence this end line evaluation. The end line evaluation covered broad areas, exploring how and to what extent collaborations and partnerships contributed or did not contribute to achieving the remarkable successes of the project. The emphasis on lessons learnt speaks to the issue of understanding what has and what has not worked as a guide for future planning of such programs.
Significant changes were recorded with regards to in service delivery, community voice and government responsiveness to the needs of communities and marginalised groups and participation of women and adolescent girls in formal and informal decision making structures. The successes of the pilot resulted in the project expansion from 12 to all 21 LGAs in Anambra, and the implementation in all southeast states and Kaduna State.
