UNICEF Pakistan is actively involved towards promotion of the well-being of target children and women in thematic program areas, that is, Water Sanitation and Hygiene (WASH), Health, Nutrition, Education, Child Protection and Polio & PMER (MICS) intervention across Sindh. To assist the field offices in regular monitoring, ensure better oversight and wider field coverage,, identifying gaps, issues and difficulties faced by women and children and reporting to the field offices on regular basis, UNICEF selected APEX Consulting Pakistan (APEX) as a partner to provide field monitors/reporters working under provincial offices of UNICEF.
The services provided by the firms included development and refinement of instruments to monitor the UNICEF’s implementing partners activities in Sindh. Our firm mobilized and trained 8 monitoring teams consisted of 14 monitors with experience in program monitoring, reporting, community development and social research. Field teams used monitoring guidelines and observations to collect information about Health, Water and Sanitation, Education and Child Protection. Weekly monitoring reports were submitted presenting possibilities, gaps, and success stories. Daily monitoring updates were also reported to provincial hubs/field offices of UNICEF. APEX also designed web-based M & E reporting system to enables field staff to upload monitoring reports on daily basis and results can be viewed globally through internet access.
