TAGHEER provides robust and bespoke management tools to improve the clients’ performance. We collaborate with them to design needs-based M&E frameworks & management tools, help them develop their human capacity, supply them subject matter experts, and ensure our clients perform with full confidence through our reach and presence in Afghanistan.
By engaging clients, clarifying goals, setting-up objectives and measures, and identifying mission-critical actions, we get our clients to their goals faster. We are accountable, yet flexible, to adapt to changing needs and meeting expectations.
We help our clients articulate their mission, manage their implementation strategies, measure and communicate their successes, and make them learn from their interventions; both successes and failures. We engage them for participation and ownership and support them continuously for technical assistance and post work follow up.
Our project monitoring system is designed to collect and analyze data to measure the achievement of project targets against the work plan and indicators at activity, output and outcome levels. Our monitoring involves collecting, analyzing, and reporting data and information, with feedback from clients and stakeholders integrated for learning and improvement; all towards better planning and effective decision making.
Our M&E plan serves our roadmap for site visits, where we agree with our clients on monitoring frequency, field visit protocols, and their particular reporting needs. We perform evidence-based assessments because we believe actions speak louder than words. Technology makes it simple for us. We use KOBO and ODK applications (offline / online versions) which adds to the quality, speed and accuracy of field data.
TAGHEER conducts feasibility studies, market research, baseline assessments, as well as performance and impact evaluations to help clients decide appropriate interventions for their projects, analyze gender and power dynamics in the project context, identify roles and responsibilities of stakeholders, needs and experiences of project beneficiaries, and establish baseline information for projects. Our evaluations help clients understand if their projects are relevant to their priorities / beneficiary needs, and effectively achieving results using the resources efficiently, and if they are sustainable beyond the funding timeline. Our studies / evaluations range from traditional snapshots to innovative designs and highly participatory studies to determine the project/program true effects over time. We conduct large-scale surveys and assessments across Afghanistan and focus on clients’ needs from the outset: How they will use our information for better decision making and to learn and improve?
