3ie Request for Proposals: Qualitative Evaluation of the Impact of Self-Help Groups on Women’s Economic and Social Empowerment in India

Deadline: 11 January 2019

The International Initiative for Impact Evaluation (3ie) is inviting organisations or consortia to submit proposals to conduct qualitative evaluations under two research themes on women’s self-help groups (SHGs) in rural India.

The studies will examine the role of self-help groups (SHGs) and their federations as institutions for promoting women’s social and economic inclusion and empowerment. The studies can be in any of the nine states that are included in the 3ie-supported impact evaluation. These include: Bihar, Chhattisgarh, Jharkhand, Madhya Pradesh, Maharashtra, Odisha, Rajasthan, Uttar Pradesh andWest Bengal.

Scope of the proposals

The focus of the qualitative studies will be to understand the role of SHGs and their federations as institutions for promoting women’s social and economic inclusion and empowerment. Specifically, 3ie will fund two qualitative evaluations to examine empowerment and SHG federation roles:

  • The impact of SHGs and their federations on multi-dimensional measures of women’s empowerment.
  • The role of SHG federations, such as VOs and CLFs, in determining SHG quality and functioning.

Funding Information

3ie will provide funding of up to USD 45,000for each evaluation, which will be completed within five months.

Eligibility Criteria

  • Only legally registered organisations and consortia of registered organisations, not individuals, may apply.
  • The grant-holding organisation and the lead PI may be located anywhere in the world.
  • The research team should include at least one researcher who is an Indian resident. The national researcher must be engaged in substantive tasks like study design,data analysis, report writing and stakeholder engagement for uptake of findings into policy and practice.
  • Each proposal must be submitted by a single organisation that may include others as sub-grantees or sub-contractors (subject to 3ie’s direct and indirect cost policies).
  • For-profit organisations are eligible to apply, but are restricted to the same indirect cost limits as non-profit organisations and may not charge a fee.
  • The applicant organisation must be able to sign the 3ie grant agreement, a sample of which is available on the 3ie website.
  • Organisations may submit more than one proposal and may be included on more than one proposal. They should, however, have the capacity to implement any and all grants awarded to them.
  • All proposals should have sufficient resources for undertaking high-quality evaluations. If the proposal is dependent on other resources, this should be clearly indicated. If selected, the applicant will need to ensure that these additional resources are available at the time of signing the agreement with 3ie. In the absence of this, the offer of 3ie grant support will be withdrawn.
