Abstract


A non-profit organization is a construct. The very main defining feature of a non-profit organization, i.e. a profit-sharing ban, is defined in a negative way. How is the effectiveness of these projects identifiable? The issue of evaluation and evaluation of the effectiveness of development projects is very extensive, mainly due to the different methodology of individual development aid providers and a large number of types of evaluation. Different entities providing development assistance and involved in development projects are approaching to evaluation in a different way. United Nations Development Program distinguishes types of evaluations from the time they take place, which performs the evaluation, evaluation according to their thematic focus or according to the specific methods and procedures used. The aim of the research project is to evaluate approaches to evaluation of the development project or to evaluate the effectiveness of the development project. The evaluation of development projects, due to their nature, has its own specifics that are important in the evaluation. For development interventions, the aim is to evaluate the relevance of the project in particular, given the situation, the impact on the target groups, whether the objectives of project have been achieved, the effectiveness and efficiency and the sustainability of the benefits of project.
