Thanks for such a warm welcome. I look forward to being a part of this initiative and its going to be a great opportunity for me to learn and contribute to such an exciting and burgeoning side of evaluation .
Thanks Rituu for such a personalized and warm welcome! I look forward to be a part of this initiative! Working on Gender can be so challanging and it is a vast & nuanced issue! Hence, such spaces provide much needed energy to boost us!
Thanks Ritu, its a vast & volatile topic and I'm trying to collect my data with as much propriety as possible (sometimes it gets tough not to take sides, but as researcher I try & keep my objectivity in place). I have been invited for a Seminar Course Lecture on Displacement and Exclusion this Thursday, would share my experience, if possible. U tkcr :)
Dear Rituu, nope,I have not facilitated that stuff. our VAW project works with providing SRHR and legal rights session and awareness campaigns to adolescent girl, married and unmarried adult women, married and unmarried males in 3 prime urban slums in 3 arms. We do have M&E for our interventions.
Thanks for the compliment & I got to say the same for you too :)
I'll update my profile as soon as I get some time. Very briefly about me, I am pursuing my PhD on the subject of understanding the women's perception about displacement as faced by them. Currently i'm travelling to-and-fro for my fieldwork/data collection in Rajasthan.
Besties to you & all the other group members! Lets keep doing the good work! :)
Hi Rituu! Thanks for informing me about the Horticultural Program (CRSP). I would have loved to prepare a proposal since I am well informed about the Uganda agricultural sector. However, I am situated in Ottawa and it seems like I would need to be located in a country of focus to prepare an RFP with a local host organization. Perhaps I can get more information from someone at Trellis Fund since I would love to work on such a project!!
Thanks for adding me Rituu. I look forward to discussion on such a needed area: gender in evaluation. I hope that gender in development will not be seen only as a cross-cutting issue/soft issue but rather as a central determinant to human development.
As for the cultural norm of FGM, how can programmers convince a population that their cultural practice is not acceptable or humane without it feeling like an imposition of external values?
