The African Evaluation (AfrEA) is a non-profit umbrella for African Voluntary Organizations for Professional Development (VOPEs). It serves as a leading source of evaluation knowledge for individual evaluators in countries where national evaluation associations do not exist.
AfrEA Strategic Objectives
“In order to guide its resources and activities over the next five to six years, AfrEA has identified three overall Strategic Goals and, beneath these, nine core activity areas upon which to focus their efforts.”
