We produce results in the lives of people who are willing to be an instrument of change, in order to impact their own lives, families, and communities positively. The effect of this positive change, will over time be clearly noticed in our society as the affected youths, relinquishes their involvement with crime and other vices, to gainfully involve themselves in contributing positively and in being useful to society.
*OUR MONITORING AND EVALUATION STRATEGY*
It is discovered that the major challenge to developmental growth in developing nations is the lack of maintenance culture. The Potters Wheel Foundation has a mechanism through which we monitor and evaluate, so as to know the exact positions of our beneficiaries’ affairs. This helps us to determine the next level of action to be applied which includes encouragement, professional advice, more materials, and financial support.
On this aspect of reporting, we use the following avenue to checkmate our activities at every point in time so as to monitor and know the true position of the foundation and our trainees firsthand, whenever it’s needed.
These avenues include:
••Continuous Report (An avenue where our supporters/donors will have the opportunity to make direct contact with our past trainees and the beneficiaries of our training for any further information needed for self-use).
