Monitoring and Evaluation
Monitoring of the sessions will be conducted regularly. Every three month during the course the expert committee will be summoned and the process will be evaluated and if required necessary changes will be done accordingly. Also the project coordinator in every 4 months will collect the feedback from peer educator, target groups and college authorities on the proceedings and it will be evaluated by the expert committee. And at last feedback will be taken from all these categories and it will be evaluated and a comprehensive report will be prepared including all details.
The sustainability of the project during the course period will be ensured through proper feedback sessions and periodical evaluation. Mass level implementation will be carried through the same process with necessary changes. The effect of the project will be long lasting as the students gone through this process (both peer educators and target groups) will get involved in the issues of children in one or other way.
