VAP's New Monitoring and Evaluation Work

 For the last couple of weeks VAP has been working on adapting a new data system dubbed Scorecard. The system captures and tracks all details of program deliverance including: ages and genders of the participants, dates of program delivery, number of coaches and participants in attendance, activity conducted and the places of the program. The Scorecard is then uploaded into an online database called Sales force where VAP loads all of their programmatic data.

 Pre/Post:

The Skillz Kenya program uses a Pre and Post survey to evaluate participants’ critical thinking, communication, self esteem, and decision making. The results of the survey should hopefully show massive changes in participants’ knowledge and attitudes about HIV/AIDS after they participate in the Skillz Kenya curriculum.

 Field Office Operations

Since the acquirement of the new ground office, Operations have been streamlined    efficiently with VAP coaches having easy access to program materials and enough room for their monthly monitoring and evaluation meetings. Additionally, due to the availability of enough working space, VAP volunteers can also access a place to work and easily mingle with the community around.

 Global Bikes Donate Bikes to VAP

 Global Bikes made a significant donation of 6 bikes to VAP. The donation of bikes will help VAP coaches move from program sites in a more efficient manner and will allow more children to benefit from the Skillz Kenya program. Global Bike has a simple mission: Use the transformative power of bikes to create positive social change in the developing world.

   VAP Coaches Attend GTZ Youth Leadership Workshop

 Two VAP coaches: Christine Atieno and Eligious Basil had an opportunity to attend a 5 day Youth training workshop organized by GTZ under the auspices of youth development football that commenced on 21st-25th March 2011. Amongst other organizations attending the workshop were: MYSA and MTG who were also represented by 2 young leaders respectively. The first 3 days training focused on effective ways of coaching young participants and the last 2 days focused intensively on leadership and management skills."The training I have received is so timely and I have gained a lot that would propel me, my fellow coaches my entire organization to make a real impact to the lives of the young participants that we work with.” Said Eligious Basil, VAP coach.
