Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation: Bambouti I Cameroon I 2012
Cameroon Catalyst and Mosame Trust have been working in Bambouti, Cameroon where they have so far constructed a community centre, a school and a mechanics’ workshop, designed in the UK, in collaboration with the village of Bambouti, and then constructed by villagers and completed and checked by a group of Southampton University students each summer. Cameroon Catalyst approached ASF-UK to conduct an evaluation of their project in order to help them to critically look at the work that they had done so far and to inform their future plans. True to ASF’s focus as an educational charity on training of built environment students and professionals, it was agreed that this evaluation should be run as a workshop – doing and learning the process of Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation (PM&E). The agreed outcomes were that ASF would produce a report giving an evaluation of the project as well as teaching the organisations, the community and the participants more about the process of, and reasons for, PM&E.
