Social Analysis, Training, Monitoring, Evaluation and Audit simply reflect our department of social matters. Inevitably WEMA believe that every project is designed to tackle social problems. Thus social analysis, training, monitoring, evaluation and audit are vital tools for the WEMA experts to be able to measure project relevance, efficiency, effectiveness, impact, and sustainability to the community. Below are some of our ongoing and completed projects which belong in this category.
