Testimonials from Past Course Participants for Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation:

“I wanted to tell you “in person” how much I enjoyed the course.  I appreciated the opportunity that you and the class afforded to 1) make me think more deeply about some of the assumptions I hold about how social change takes place 2) become a lot smarter about what community-led development should really be in practice, 3) dramatically expand my knowledge of Participatory Monitoring & Evaluation methods and how best to implement them 4) create a “safe space” where I could speak freely.”

“This is the third course I’ve taken through Village Earth, and while they’ve all been eye-opening and valuable, this one brings everything together for me. I see now that for years I wanted participatory M&E in my work, but had no idea it existed, what to call it, what to look for, how to begin to go about it, etc. And I certainly didn’t have the vocabulary to describe vague wish-things-were-different feelings to co-workers or employers. What I’ve learned here, I’ll take and begin to introduce in my community. I’m excited by the way participatory M&E creates the conversation and direction.”
