Better process and results


Better process and results by more effective human interaction in monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning (MEAL)

Facili2transform aims to support its clients to have a  better process and improved results by assisting them to do more effective monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning (MEAL) in international development programmes related to basic social services,social-economic development, ecology & biodiversity and community based development. The human factor is key in Facili2transform's approach. Human interaction between development actors is crucial in making monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning (MEAL) effective.  It is my belief (Simon Koolwijk, founder and owner of Facili2transform), that if people communicate well, build understanding and start to build a relationship of trust, then this will contribute to better results and social impact. Therefore, Facili2transform advises, trains and guides international development programmes to include human interaction components in MEAL-systems to enable a better proces and to achieve results and social impact.

Clients and target groups

Facili2transform aims to enable professionals (monitoring & evaluation experts and officers) and organizations who take a leading role in promoting diversity, equality, fair distribution of resources, nature, biodiversity to obtain tools, that will help them to do more effective monitoring, evaluation, accountability and learning which eventually will contribute to better results and social impact.

Facilitator, trainer, evaluator and filmcoach
With passion I guide processes and projects, where organizations and people with a shared interest learn, meet, strengthen and deepen their relationships, reflect and jointly build strategies. My role is to guide this process through group facilitation, training, evaluation and coaching. In doing so, if there is additional value,  film is used as a learning tool. Filmmaking is a process that increases awareness, encourages and deepens dialogue and helps to accelerate change. In case film does not provide additional value, I provide group facilitation aiming to achieve a better process and better results.

On the 25th and 26th October, 2018 three monitoring and evaluation experts participated at the 2-day training ‘Videomaking for monitoring and evaluation’ held at Kontakt der Kontinenten, Soesterberg, The Netherlands.  In two days they gained knowledge on how to apply video for monitoring and evaluation, camera techniques and the characteristics of a good video, which was followed by a lot of practice on story development, filming and editing. At the end of the training the M & E experts showed and shared a short video production which they had developed during the training.

Stories have impact!

Student drop out rates declined, teachers behaviour became more disciplined, students became more responsible and student rates increased dramatically at the Debre Work Junior School, Ethiopia, due to the social accountability process. Because this story was recorded and told through a participatory video making process and presented at a stakeholder dialogue meeting, the dialogue that followed made the government to decide to avail substantial budgets and support for other schools in the region to implement the social accountability process.
