Monitoring & Evaluation Training for Staff & Volunteers

monitoring & evaluation trainingIn line with our policy on continuous organization development and staff capacity building, OLPHI embarks, from time to time, on training exercises on various aspects of our engagements, including both ongoing Monitoring and Evaluation as well as working and cooperation with external evaluators. To do this, we engage the services of top professionals in development, public health and environmental advocacy experts from various parts of the country.

In April 2014, for example, we invited highly experienced resource persons from the Society for Family Health and Deodora Sameritan (one session pictured above) to train our staff on Monitoring and Evaluation. A total of 10 members of OLPHI staff were trained in the session that lasted for 3 days. The workshop was very engaging and informative and our staff were very pleased with the methodologies employed by the resource persons. They were, through this workshop, empowered with new skills to constantly assess their performances against set indicators towards achieving the expected outcomes, using both action reflection and SMART (Specificity, Measurability, Achievability, Relevance and Time-binding) documentation.
