The final (skype) presentation of the monitoring and evaluation system for Tarayana
The final (skype) presentation of the monitoring and evaluation system for Tarayana taken up by the student team from the UNC Public Policy Capstone course, taken up as an assignment for the semester ( Austin Chowdhury, Anagha Gogate, Kelsey Hathaway, and Alyssa Lozano guided by their Professor Pete Andrews and Prof. Benjamin Mason Meier). The main purpose of this project was to develop a new Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) System for the Foundation that will better inform the results of the rural and social development projects that the Foundation has undertaken. This system will allow for the Foundation to better measure it’s successes, to improve the projects after conducting evaluations, and to attract additional funding from international agencies and donor organizations. The Foundation would like to extend our heartiest gratitude to the student team and the two Professors who guided them. This will go a long way in assessing our interventions meaningfully / systematically and plan better for our future interventions. We would also like to thank the Asia 21 team through which , this initiative was undertaken. We now look forward to the support of the Asia 21 team members in making this system into a mobile app, through which our Field Officers in the remote areas can enter real time data from their sites, which will automatically be updated in systems of the headquarter. We are very excited and looking forward to the completion of this system.
