Monitoring and Evaluation Specialist - OFRA
CABI, Canary Bird, 673 Limuru Road, Muthaiga, PO Box 633-00621, Nairobi, Kenya
I am the Monitoring and Evaluation specialist for CABI's OFRA project where I will be overseeing the implementation of M & E by the partners in Africa and reporting to CABI and AGRA on the project implementation progress.
I have been monitoring and evaluating research for development projects for over 8 years and implementing enterprise-based development approaches to empower rural people by diversifying income and creating employment especially for youths and women.
I have experience in agricultural value chain analysis and research (study design, data collection, data analysis, report writing and value chain mapping) for both developmental and research projects. I have an MSc in Range-ecology where I specialised in community based approaches to impact assessment.
Prior to joining CABI, I was working as an M & E Research Officer at the International Livestock Research Institute (ILRI) and also as a Programme Manager M&E at SITE Enterprise Promotions supporting impact evaluation studies and helping partners build capacity among others.
Previously, I was a team leader in the formulation of Kenya Seed Potato Master Plan that analysed the potato value chain funded by GIZ. I have also consulted for other international and national NGOS in Kenya, including ILRI, International Potato Centre, GTZ, Kings University College Canada, KADET-World Vision and Christian Reformed Word Relief Committee. I have an interest in community-based approaches and gender integration in research development.
