Process Evaluation of the WASH for Life Partnership

2017-2018
Prepared For

Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation

In 2011, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation’s Water, Sanitation, and Hygiene (WSH) team partnered with USAID’s Development Innovation Ventures to establish WASH for Life, a $17 million pool of dedicated funding for innovative water, sanitation, and hygiene projects with the potential to scale

In 2017, as the partnership was ending, the WSH team commissioned Mathematica to conduct an ex post process evaluation to identify lessons learned from this unique collaboration. The mixed methods process evaluation drew on program documents; administrative data; key informant interviews with Foundation and USAID staff, sector experts, and grantees; and an online survey of applicants to the WASH for Life funding window.
