WILPF Nigeria participated in a two days residential training on the 15th and 16th of March 2021 in Lagos state as an implementing partner on the joint U-UN spotlight initiative project. The training was organized by UN Women to strengthen capacities of implementing partners on result based reporting result based monitoring and evaluation. The Spotlight Initiative is a global partnership between the European Union (EU) and the United Nations (UN) to eliminate all forms of violence against women and girls. The Initiative aims to achieve a Nigeria where all women and girls particularly the most vulnerable live free from all forms of violence. The training came as a result of the importance of result based reporting for the Spotlight Programme.
During the two days training, participants were taught on what M& E is all about, how to monitor and evaluate programmes from a result based perspective, how to measure progress of a program using key indicators alongside other terminologies on monitoring and evaluation. The participants were also trained on the new reporting template for implementing partners and also on filling of the jot form which was a result frame work. On the group work session, participants were shared into groups of six which indicated the six pillars of the spotlight program and each group where expected to work on the pillars assigned to them. This was to strengthen understanding on what was expected of implementing partners on each pillar in measuring success/results.
WILPF Nigeria is a registered national and non-partisan not for profit organization created in 2008 in response to a country faced with multidimensional problems related to women’s discrimination and challenges to their participation in peace and security.
