Why Are We Monitoring?

  1. To document the current operational procedures of the HGSFP at the school level and provide support in ensuring that they are adhered to.
  2. To ensure that community members play active roles in ensuring smooth delivery of the HGSFP.
  3. To ensure that each stakeholder involved in the HGSFP remains accountable for their assigned roles and responsibilities.
  4. To document gaps/challenges that hinder current programme delivery from adhering to approved guidelines.
  5. To give recommendations on programme improvement based on observed and documented limitations/weaknesses which will be geared towards enhancing accountability and transparency in programme implementation.
