Evaluation of Beyond Access Libraries Program in Bangladesh
This brief illustrates EnCompass' evaluation of the Beyond Access initiative-- funded by the Global Libraries Program-- to modernize libraries across Bangladesh. This effort, implemented by Save the Children in Bangladesh and IREX, has turned over 20 libraries across the country into community hubs, providing a safe space for children to learn outside of school.
EnCompass conducted a two-phase evaluation using a mixed-methods approach from 2015-2016, conducting key informant interviews and focus groups to capture qualitative data for this project. For more information about our parnership with the Global Libraries Program, please visit our Project page.
