Learning Partnership: DREEM Programme

Expectation State is working with World University Service of Canada (WUSC) and Mastercard Foundation on the Displaced and Refugee youth Enabling Environment Mechanism (DREEM). This five-year project seeks to foster knowledge sharing and identify opportunities to enhance the inclusion of refugee youth in national, local, and institutional agendas across Africa.

As the DREEM Learning Partner, we work across its three pillars of Young Africa Works, Scholars Program and the Innovation Fund. Our role entails assessing, analysing, and documenting the impact and effectiveness of the project’s three core pillars to help identify and communicate learning. Specifically, we work across: 

  • Evaluation: Conducting a comprehensive assessment of DREEM project implementation, gathering stakeholder feedback and analysing outcomes.
  • Learning and Knowledge Sharing: Documenting key lessons and best practices, facilitating cross-learning sessions, and supporting DREEM as a learning programme.
  • Recommendations and Strategy Development: Providing actionable recommendations to enhance program design and management, integrating evaluation insights into future programming and work plans.
