Project Description

UNICEF Pakistan is actively involved towards promotion of wellbeing of target children and women in thematic program areas that is Communication Network in Polio across KP and FATA. To assist the field offices in COMNet monitoring, ensure better oversight and wider field coverage, identifying gaps and challenges in the work of COMNet and reporting to the field offices on regular basis, UNICEF selected APEX Consulting Pakistan (APEX) as a partner to provide field monitors/reporters working under provincial offices of UNICEF.

Services provided by APEX

The services provided by the firms included development and refinement of instruments to monitor the UNICEF’s implementing partners activities in KPK and six agencies of FATA region. Our firm mobilized and trained 8 monitoring teams consisted of 13 monitors with experience in program monitoring, reporting, community development and social research. Field teams used monitoring guidelines and observations to collect information about Polio program. Monthly monitoring reports were submitted presenting possibilities, gaps and success stories. Daily monitoring updates were also reported to provincial hubs/field offices of UNICEF. APEX also designed web based M & E reporting system to enables field staff to upload monitoring reports on daily basis and results can be viewed globally through internet access.
