The post questionnaires are conducted after the program to gauge participants’ gained knowledge, attitudes and communication about corruption and integrity issues. To gather further qualitative data, focus group discussions and In-depth interviews are conducted in some of the interventions and information entered into the scoreboard where they get analyzed on a monthly basis.
