    • BACKGROUND
    • ADAPTATION PROCESS OF CSI
    • INTEGRATING CSI INTO M&E PLAN/SYSTEM FOR OVC

        • Development of abstract on CSI (with CSI ToT Team)
        • CSI abstract was also selected among other oral abstract presentations on Protection of OVC
        • It was recommended that the tool should be adapted to Rwandan context and then be used
  • 5. BACKGROUND (CONT’D)
    • MANAGEMENT TEAM:
    • MIGEPROF (Esron, Damien and Alfred)
    • UNICEF (François & Gisèle)
    • USAID (Alphonse)
    • MEASURE Evaluation (Andrew)
    • AVSI (Lorette)
    • CHAMP (Eléazar)
  • 6. BACKGROUND
    • CSI TASK FORCE :
    • AVSI
    • World Relief
    • Africare
    • PAMASOR
    • Uyisenga n’Manzi
    • ARCT Ruhuka
    • AEE
    • Haguruka
    • CRS
    • World Vision
    • Ministry of Justice
    • Right to Play
  • 7. ADAPTATION PROCESS OF THE TOOL
    • Settlement of Task force (Government, UN Agencies, NGO)
    • Translation
    • Training PAMASOR volunteers (with Dr Florence)
    • Training volunteers and field staff: AVSI (South), Africare (East), ARCT (North), Uyisenga n’Manzi, AEE (Kigali), Haguruka (Kigali), PAMASOR (Kigali)
    • Pre-testing the tool on field
    • OVC TWG to collect feedback from volunteers
    • Technical meetings (Task Force) to incoporate comments
    • Consultative Meeting with OVC stakeholders
    • Validation meeting with OVC stakeholders
  • 8. CHALLENGES
    • Three to four volunteers expressed that the services concerning Food & Nutrition, Psychosocial support and abuse & exploitation seemed to be difficult to score.
    • Worries were also expressed regarding data quality given by unpaid staff /volunteers (worry by program staff).
    • Collecting all the detailed information on all given services __Program managers were made aware that CSI gives a general picture on the wellbeing of the child. It is not there to replace other ways used in reporting.
  • 9. ADVANTAGES
    • Many partners have found the CSI to be an answer for them in collecting information that depicts their successes in achieving those set goals.
    • OVC caregivers and field staff have appreciated the CSI tool as a simple tool: One-page form that is easy to handle and to capture holistic information about the quality of services given to OVCs and the needs and gaps that should be addressed.
    • The CSI insists on creating synergies among caregivers, their communities, the service providers and within members of each of the above categories.
  • 10. REMARKS
    • Proper training of the CSI users requires sufficient time.
    • Intensive and sustained supervision to volunteers is needed in the implementation of CSI (by field workers/staff).
    • No particular obstacle to scaling up the CSI tool, so far
  • 11. OPPORTUNITIES
    • Political willingness
    • General acceptance among different OVC caregivers, NGOs, UN agencies and Government officials in Rwanda
    • Its integration into other national tools, documents
  • 12.
    • INTEGRATING CSI INTO
    • OVC PROGRAM
    • M&E PLAN/SYSTEM

  • 15. INTEGRATING OF CSI ASPECTS INTO:
    • M&E Framework for the OVC Strategic Plan, including Minimum Package of Services offered to OVC
    • Vulnerability criteria (cfr Identification Guide for the selection of OVC)
  • 16. INTEGRATING CSI INTO OVC PROGRAM M&E PLAN/SYSTEM
      • CSI is referred to in the M&E framework as a special study report . It will help at the outcome and impact level as DHS reports do.
      • Examples of CSI aspects included in the M&E framework for the OVC Strategic Plan:
      • - Impact indicator: improved quality of lives of OVC.
      • How measured/tracked: number of children scoring 3 or 4 in all the 12 dimensions of CSI
      • - Outcome indicator: “Proportion of OVC who are safe from neglect,
      • stigma, discrimination or exploitation” (CSI outcome)
      • -Output indicator: “Number of OVC provided with support with type of services disaggregated by gender, age and district” (Data collection tool: OVC Register; CSI)
  • 17. INTEGRATING CSI INTO OVC PROGRAM M&E PLAN/SYSTEM —CONT’D
      • CSI outcomes included in the Minimum Package of services:
          • Note that in the Minimum Package of services offered to OVC: 6 (CSI services) +1 (Economic Strengthening).
          • In the Minimum Package of Services offered to OVC, « SHELTER » is not associated with « CARE »; because « care » is really included in « Psychosocial support » . But, on CSI “Shelter & Care” are together.
          • All CSI outcomes have been included in the document of Minimum Package of services offered to OVC.
  • 18. INTEGRATING CSI INTO OVC PROGRAM M&E PLAN/ SYSTEM
      • CSI aspects included in vulnerability criteria (for OVC identification purposes) : Examples:
    • - Child who is anxious, lonely, sad, aggressive
      • Child who is anxious, lonely, sad all the time
      • Child who is violent, aggressive because of his/her past
    • - Child with school problems
        • Child who has never been at school
        • Child who has dropped out of school for lack of means
  • 19. INTEGRATING CSI INTO OVC PROGRAM M&E PLAN/ SYSTEM (CONT’D)
      • CSI assessment has to be planned for and coordinated with other M&E activities (for better scheduling, staffing, funding, and use of existing resources)
      • Consolidating CSI data with other M&E data will strengthen advocacy efforts for OVC
  • 20. COMING SOON:
    • Training of ToTs (CSI users—NGOs, CBOs, District OVC Officers)
    • Holding an advocacy meeting with development partners/donors
    • Adapt/finalize a pictorial version of CSI (for illiterate volunteers)
  • 21. LOOKING FORWARD …..
    • Computerization of all the Data
    • Improving the quality of Data
    • Utilization of data for advocacy
      • At community level
      • At district level
      • At national level
      • At IP level
  • 22. MORE THOUGHTS NEEDED ON
    • Ways to link CSI & results from Expenditure Study
    • The FREQUENCY in applying the CSI (asked by NGOs).
    • Using CSI as a NATIONAL SURVEILLANCE tool
    • Getting technical support for Database
  • 23.
