Evaluation of State Department’s DRL Global Equality Fund and the Dignity for All: LGBTI Assistance Program
EnCompass is conducting a two-part evaluation of the U.S. State Department’s Bureau of Democracy, Human Rights, and Labor (DRL) Global Equality Fund and the Dignity for All: LGBTI Assistance Program. Launched in 2011, The Global Equality Fund administers Dignity for All, which provides emergency assistance for LGBTI activists. The Fund also administers grants and engages in other efforts to support the LGBTI community, engaging in 80 programs in over 50 countries around the world. The evaluation will be used to develop a change model for the Fund, and enable DRL to measure progress in LGBTI human rights support. The mixed-methods approach includes interviews, focus group discussions, document reviews, and workshops, among other activities.
