Research Hub , Monitoring and Evaluation Training in Rwanda

Training workshop on M&E of development projects–Call for applications.
Training Name:  Monitoring and evaluation of development projects
Training dates: 10th -14th July 2017
Location: Kigali (Venue TBC)
Fees:  $708 (inclusive of VAT)
Award: Certificate in Monitoring and evaluation of development projects.
Organization Background:

Research Hub is an insights firm that specialises in monitoring evaluation and research. Our philosophy is anchored on the belief that the success of every project or idea is contingent on solid and credible information being available to decision makers. For this to happen, we are cognisant of the need to spread the knowledge of monitoring evaluation and research across the rank and file of staff involved in project management and not just “M&E specialist”. Changes in technology and increasing demand for counterfactual analysis of development project require that those involved in the business of collecting, analysing and using data reflect on how they are doing it.
Research Hub aims to facilitate this discourse by ensuring that the development space has a critical mass of professionals capable of designing, implementing, monitoring and evaluating projects successfully.
We do this through
1) tailored training courses in; Monitoring, evaluation and research, project planning and management,
2) cross-sectional studies, formative evaluations/assessments, longitudinal studies and counterfactual evaluations.
