Mos project monitoring_trip_report_2013

  1. 1. MOZAMBIQUE Project monitoring trip report 31.8.-14.2013 The project monitoring trip to Maputo, Mozambique was realized between the 31st of August and 14th of September, 2013. The project in question, Increasing the reading and writing capability of … , is realized by a Maputo based NGO, Afortalecer. The trip was monitored by SYL:s representatives Johanna Ursin-Escobar and Silja Palmujoki. The objectives of the trip were to learn how the project has been launched, to see if there is need for any changes in the project plan, to revise the indicators and to improve the partnership by getting to know each other better. The most important results of the monitoring trip where that the project has started but with fewer activities than planned. The general atmosphere in the organization was optimistic, analytical and conversational. As usual, the first year of project produced some delays in implementing the activities. The bookshelves have been appropriately procured and calligraphy books acquired. Nevertheless, not all the planned trainings for teachers and workshops for children have been realized. Some changes were made to the activities with children´s workshops and parent´s participation (Activity 4), as well as their indicators. Groups for storytelling and homework with parents were replaced with “learning cafés” and workshops supported by university students. Changes in detail can be seen in the updated version of the project plan. It was decided that in continuation Afortalecer will systemize their activities and will have a more participatory outreach in different areas of their project. Some new formulas for activity monitoring were also created. A timetable on the deadlines and activities for the rest of the year will be sent to Afortalecer soon.
