Monitoring and Evaluation System for the Tanzania Women Lawyers Association (TAWLA)

Despite the fact that TAWLA has been implementing many project since 1990 there is no effective documented monitoring and evaluation system in tracking the information of the implemented projects. Also, the M&E unit is still in its early stages of development with limited staffing that is only one M&E personnel that is M&E Officer. These have resulted in incomplete tools for data collection, false data and late reporting and even fail to report.

Not only that limited knowledge and skills in M&E among staffs and volunteers is among the factors as most of them are lawyers by professionals. In addition to that, lack of appreciation on the importance of M&E and poor feedback mechanism from regional offices especially on data collected. In this regards, TAWLA faced with in adequate reporting system with no clearly defined indicators and  a weak M&E system, keeping track of the performance of its projects became problem.

By developing M&E framework, capacity building for staffs at all levels will lead to reliable and timely data collection to inform the system. The improved capacity will lead to improved attitude among staffs and hence improve feedback mechanism and therefore improve kind of data collected resulting into quality data.

Therefore this project intends to develop M&E system of the SIDA Project at TAWLA to ensure efficient and effective monitoring of the project and inform proper decision making. The system will be updated from time to time to cover the need of other incoming project as necessary.
