The Learning about Living (LaL) Nigeria project was initially piloted in Lagos and Cross River States, and the Federal Capital Territory Abuja, from 2007 to 2009 and coordinated by OneWorld UK (OWUK). The project involves the development and implementation of an e-learning system based on the Nigerian Family Life and HIV/AIDS Education (FLHE) curriculum. An associated mobile component comprising a Question and Answer service (Q&A) and a competetion to further engage young people. The project was conceived by OneWorld Uk and Butterfly Works Netherlands, and builds on the fascination young people have with information and communitcaion technology (ICT), especially computers and mobile phones to connect them to vital information about HIV and sexual and repoductive health. The main thrust of the project is to utilise ICT to equip Nigerian teenagers with the relevant skills to enable them make informed decisions about their sexual health, to prevent HIV/AIDS and gender based violence, and to reduce their risk to maternal mortality and morbidity. Funding for the project came from Oxfam Novib Netherlands, The John D. and Catherine T. MacArthur Foundation, the David and Lucile Packard Foundation and Butterfly Works. An independent evaluation of the pilot was undertaken in November 2008 which showed initial programme success and recommended a scale up of the project through expansion to other parts of the country. This report describes the findings of an independent external evaluation of the scaleup phase of project conducted for OWUK and Oxfam Novib. The purpose of the evaluation was to assess the overall effectiveness of the project, with a focus on progress against the logical framework outputs, key project milestones and the project purpose.
