I have been hunkered down for the last couple of weeks writing my milestone report for the ICTPD cluster. Today I have sent it off to the Ministry. Whilst it was a burden to administer and collate, what it has given me is an excellent insight into the progress of each school that I work with in a more in depth way than my anecdotal observations from my visits.
I still feel that the 31 page report could be a lot less cumbersome for the men at the Ministry if they were to allow me to read the reports sent back to me, cogitate on the contents and then synthesize my findings into a page of evidence. As it currently stands I sent in a 31 page document. I hope for the planet’s sake this is never printed out and is only stored electronically.
