The monitoring and evaluation Unit of MTN Foundation handles the design and implementation of organization wide monitoring and evaluation systems. The unit is tasked with generating quality information/data that will eventually guide the management decision-making process within MTN Foundation. This ensures effective project management and delivery of sound technical assistance.
The M&E unit ensures that MTN Foundation implements and manages projects effectively in the areas of Health, Education and Economic Empowerment in line with MTN Nigeria corporate social responsibility strategy.
In an effort to consolidate on our achievements and to ensure that real time information on MTNF projects are generated to aid project management, 2 M&E Consultants were engaged to assist the M&E unit to conduct monitoring and evaluation activities of MTNF in the North and Southern zone.
During the year, the M&E unit conducted the following evaluations of our projects:
The M&E unit conducts baseline surveys of new MTNF projects and conducts evaluations for new MTNF projects and new phases of existing projects.
The M&E unit monitors MTNF projects nationwide on a monthly and quarterly bases with the assistance of Consultants and Government Community Relations Officers (GCRO).
These monitoring activities provide relevant information on our projects for decision making by MTNF management and the MTNF BOD.
The MTNF M&E Unit also coordinates quarterly review meetings for the Foundation. This is a one day meeting involving Project/M&E Officers of partner organizations and MTNF Project Management Team.
The monitoring and Evaluation session includes a review and presentation of quarterly reports, as well as discussions on issues affecting the various MTNF projects being implemented by the project partners.
