Read Time:2 Minute, 37 Second

The project “EU4Youth – Unlocking the potential of young social entrepreneurs in Moldova and Ukraine” (EUnlocking Project) is looking for a consultant to provide the final evaluation.

The project “EU4Youth – Unlocking the potential of young social entrepreneurs in Moldova and Ukraine” (EUnlocking Project) helps to foster the social entrepreneurial potential of young people in Moldova and Ukraine by establishing a favourable ecosystem for social enterprises, as well as by supporting more young social entrepreneurs to develop and sustain their innovative solutions to the promotion of social inclusion and environmental sustainability across both countries.

The project is co-funded by the European Union under its EU4Youth Programme. The objectives of the project are to:

• improve the legal framework for social entrepreneurship in Moldova and establish the respective legislation for Ukraine based on Moldova’s best-practices;

• improve the capacity of young social entrepreneurs in business administration, fundraising and advocacy activities for promoting social enterprises’ interests through the development of a Moldovan-Ukrainian network of young social entrepreneurs;

• motivate more youth to start social start-ups and raise the recognition of social entrepreneurs’ contribution to social inclusion and the reduction of inequalities;

• strengthen relevant business support structures for young entrepreneurs in both countries, including start-up funding.

The aim of the external evaluation is to analyse the relevance, outputs, outcomes, and impact of the project in response to the project’s objectives and targets as well as its sustainability. The evaluation report should include an assessment of the project impact, potential sustainability, identification of lessons learnt and best practices as well as proposed improvements for a possible extension of the project activities.
