The evaluation assessed the “National Legal Aid Clinic for Women’s (NLACW) Access to Justice Programme in Zambia”. The evaluation’s objective was to assess the performance of the NALCW Strategic Plan 2019-2023, and to provide input for the formulation of the next strategic plan. Through the access to justice programme, NLACW is committed to empowering women by facilitating their access to legal rights by way of legal representation, counselling and legal and human rights education as a distinct but integral part of the women’s movement. The evaluation team found both the organization and its specific services and activities to be highly relevant in the Zambian context, with impressive results as almost all indicators were above the targets one year before the end of the programme. Financial and organisational sustainability must be built as it currently depends heavily on a few key donors. The team recommended to Sida to keep funding the next NLACW strategic plan and engage actively with other like-minded donors. To NLACW, the team provided several recommendations on strategic approach, operational level and organisational strengthening.
