RaCIP project aims to enhance the capacity building for organizations operating Private Sponsorship (PS) schemes or otherwise engaged in community-based support to refugees’ integration. The project will feature several pilot schemes aimed at scaling up existing PS and strengthening community-based efforts by experimenting with PS initiatives in the partner countries involved.
The project will develop mentoring and peer-to-peer activities to provide refugees with social, educational and professional support throughout the settlement process. The project will facilitate access to the job market designing tailored vocational training for refugees.

Evaluation results/ monitoring plan To ensure the correct implementation of the project and establish the basis for future replicability, a monitoring system will be developed. Monitoring activities will gather crucial information needed to develop an evaluation system in order to assess the relevance, effectiveness and sustainability of the project.
Learning assessment The learning gained by the local mentors and refugee mentees at all stages of the project, from the delivery of workshops with locals to the launch and completion of the pilot mentoring activities, was assessed through different methodologies. These included questionnaires, a team evaluation exercise, and observation. We opted to explore three methods of evaluation, both for practical and quality reasons. The practical reasons involve trying to capture the sentiment of the training on the spot, but also being able to collect the feedback and evaluation of the participants either way, in case they could not answer the questionnaire later. The observation method was also used by the trainers to measure the satisfaction of the trainees at a real time.
Recognition or certification of learning Certifications of learning were given by the partner organizations to the local mentors upon completion of the training paths, as well as to the mentees and mentors when having carried out the mentoring activities.
