Free Monitoring and Evaluation Training

M&E Capacity Support Program


In the humanitarian sector, Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) and Technology for Development (T4D) are areas that are often considered secondary tasks. This means that they are frequently under-resourced within an organisation, despite being an important aspect. We want to help change this and believe that new, small and grass-roots organisations should not be left out. That’s why we have developed this free monitoring and evaluation training program.

We support newly established and grass-roots organisations in improving their M&E practice. We believe the most effective way to do so is through open-source training materials, and one-on-one virtual training with our M&E experts.

We offer direct organisational support on the following topics:

  • Basic training on M&E
    • Good indicators
    • Qualitative and quantitative data collection tools
    • Logframes and theory of change
  • Training in data quality assurance practices
  • Review M&E Frameworks and plans
  • Support in outlining a Digitalisation Strategy
  • How to use digital data collection
  • Evaluating T4D projects through Digital Principles of Development
  • Developing data standards and reporting


We do not want to replace M&E staff, but work with your staff to build their capacity. This will enable them to take on these tasks in the future.

Lastly, we want to ensure our free monitoring and evaluation training goes to the right organisations. Thus if you are interested, your organisation should meet the following criteria. You should only operation on national, regional or local level, but not internationally. Your organisational yearly turnover has to be less than 250,000 USD. You do not need any official registration.
