ACKNOWLEDGEMENTS
This report was made possible through the support of many dedicated people. First, the leadership and staff of The Salvation Army (TSA) Uganda
especially the TSA OVC project manager (Sam), who ensured that all staff and resources were organized to support the evaluation team, and the TSA Eastern regional field staff (Joseph,Jane, Medi, Agnes, Stephen, Michael, and Isaac), who committed seemingly endless workdays to the effort.Secondly, the interview team. Our team conducted interviews with energy, patience and skill, despite theconstant challenges of mud and rain. Thirdly, Dr. Paul Bukuluki and Grace Mwangi. Their expertise wasinvaluable in taking the evaluation from a promising idea to a 30-person team effort. Finally, a number of colleagues in the U.S. gave substantial time and knowledge to crafting the final product: Dr. Rob Stephenson, Dr.Jessica Greene, Jean Capps, Sara Davis (SAWSO) and Bram Bailey (SAWSO).
