  1. Quote

“After our workshop in June, we presented what we learned and our project proposal to the mayor and the local school board. There was an initial resistance to the proposal for the creation of an M&E team because it seemed like we were questioning and auditing the Department of Education. For our second meeting, we emphasized that evidence is important to improve our programmes, and the district supervisors became supportive and agreed with the creation of the M&E team.”
