Monitoring & Evaluation
We are front runners in the design and implementation of monitoring and evaluation programs and systems. We undertake systematic performance in monitoring and reporting of programs, as well as periodic review of specific activities under different programs/projects and overall evaluation of their impact.
We are committed to tackling the societal, political and economic challenges which arise in the context of conflict management with interdisciplinary approaches in research, education and consulting. Our objective is to contribute to the achievement of conflict management at all societal levels by developing and applying logical insight.
We work to build resilient societies with the capacity to promote tolerance and dialogue; where processes exist for the peaceful mediation of differences; where a widely accepted social contract ensures trust between the state and society; and where patterns of inclusiveness and participation contribute to sustainable human development.
Organizational Capacity Building
Through our work, we’ve become very familiar with some of the ongoing challenges faced by the nonprofit sector in Kenya. Among these is the issue of capacity building and how to strengthen organizational effectiveness. Often, nonprofit organizations driven by their passion, funders’ restrictions or because of other factors, focus their resources on programs or services, without investing in their organizations and initiatives aimed to maximize impact and sustainability.
Project Management is crucial to the success of many development, government and non-profit organizations (NGOs). With reduced budgets and increased demands from donors and other stakeholders, organizations need to incorporate the tools and practices of modern project management in order to achieve the expected results.
