Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting Specialist

Project Description

The Association Espoir pour Demain (AED-Lidaw) in Togo has requested the support of a Peace Corps Response Volunteer (PCRV) to serve as a Monitoring, Evaluation and Reporting Specialist. AED Lidaw has been implementing projects in the Kara Region since 2001. Since its inception, the organization has not been successful in establishing a solid monitoring, evaluation and reporting strategy that will ensure its program and operations objectives are being achieved efficiently and effectively. Having identified that gap, the organization has identified a need for support to strengthen the capacity of the recently hired MER Specialist in data collection instruments and database management system to support evidence-based decision.

The PCRV will collaborate with the MER Specialist, the Executive Director at AED-Lidaw, and AED-Lidaw community partners to strengthen the institutional capacity to gather, interpret, and organize data into actionable insight, improve project quality and operational efficiency and effectiveness. The PCRV will use Knowledge, Attitude and Practices (KAP) data to co-facilitate the establishment/development of monitoring, evaluation and reporting instruments and a user-friendly database management system, and the PCRV will also co-train/coach AED-Lidaw designated staff, community partners, and focal points, on the utilization of monitoring, evaluation and reporting instruments and database management system.

Candidates selected for this position will be arriving in Togo together as a group, so while the departure dates for the whole group could change, dates cannot be changed for individual candidates.
