According to Robert Tew, "The struggle you're in today is developing the strength you need for tomorrow." Our struggles caused by the pandemic and other factors among our projects in Svay Rieng province taught our team many things. There were success stories and not successful ones, but every learning from those experiences becomes our strength to continue, be innovative, and creative to continue.
It was a challenging process since the half year was passed and many communities here are still not follow-up and many still need to settle. Progress is still moving one step at a time with the help and participation of everyone.
We are grateful for the progress we have in this province. We see the need to improve and the factors that affected the group during the past years because everyone is participating. According to the Rural and Agriculture Organization of the United Nations, participatory monitoring and evaluation (M&E) is an integral part of village development projects, where people are actively involved in a continuous feedback system to see whether activities are done according to the plan. Data are collected and analyzed to assess the impact of activities in terms of the project objectives. The system covers all aspects of the project namely the process of operation, the performance of those involved, progress achieved quantitatively and qualitatively, resources used, and the impact both on the life of intended beneficiaries, and on the local environment. We are hopeful for all the participation from our partners and this continues to inspire us to help, grow, and learn together.
