Monitoring & Evaluation in Malawi
Consistent monitoring and evaluation of operations help to build strategic programs with maximum impact.
Our dynamic web-based data monitoring platform integrates program and financial information to track: inputs (financial and human resources); activities (educational workshop and community-led projects); outputs (number of people trained, number of projects completed), near-term outcomes (increased access to resources, strengthened capacity); and long-term impacts (improved livelihoods, healthy communities).
In keeping with the empowerment and capacity-building approach we take to development, The Hunger Project takes a participatory approach to monitoring and evaluation (M&E) as well. We do this through Participatory Action Research trainings in which special M&E animators learn the basics of monitoring and evaluation.
There are 100 active M&E animators among the eight epicenters in Malawi, and six of the epicenters have completed baseline surveys, information collected on key indicators and socioeconomic factors prior to the start of or during the initial stages of The Hunger Project’s Epicenter Strategy.
