Monitoring and Evaluation

Midwives@ethiopia are committed to working closely with our partners in Ethiopia to ensure that the training courses we provide are useful, appropriate, culturally respectful and research based. With training and ongoing support from Wales For Africa Community Links we have developed a comprehensive policy for monitoring and evaluating the work we do.

Our methods include

  • Video diaries/ story telling
  • Pre and post course evaluation forms in both English and Amharic
  • Photographs
  • Case studies
  • Quantitative data (numbers of HEWs in the area/numbers trained etc)
  • Focus groups
  • Observations
  • Interviews (semi-structured and also informal)
  • Individuals from the community in Wales/ UK attending trips to observe and offer comments/input
  • Reports from other charities/ non-government organisations
  • Birth records/data available
