This Wednesday, August 10th, Christian Alliance for Orphans (CAFO) will continue their monthly webinar series, Knowledge + Practice. These webinars translate research into actionable information that OVC care practitioners can implement immediately to elevate the quality of the care they provide.

This eighth webinar in the series is called “Basic Principles of Monitoring and Evaluation: Measuring Effectiveness” from 2-3pm Eastern. A child’s wellbeing is significantly linked to the quality of care he or she receives.  But how do we know if care is quality?  How do we know whether the vision we have outlined is truly being accomplished in the way we care for vulnerable children?  Monitoring and evaluation (M&E) is a process by which we measure our effectiveness, assessing whether the our goals are matched by the outcomes of our ministries.  M&E is a process that helps improve performance, achieve results, and demonstrate impact. Dr. Beverly Nyberg of PEFPAR’s Office of Global Health and HIV at Peace Corps will walk attendees through basic principles that even small or new organizations can use to ensure good intentions are leading to positive results.
