Quantity with Quality
The project workers now have to think about a further aspect of the process indicators. Veteran project workers have been trained to fill out their project applications with measurable indicators, which enable the success of a project to be reliably evaluated. For them an indicator of success would be, for example, that 5 seminars about inheritance law are to be held and a total of 20 young women are expected to participate. After all, if this is achieved they will have reached 80% of the affected people, informing and training them in regard to their rights. They are now unsure and ask:
Frage: Why have quantitative indicators suddenly become irrelevant?
- These indicators aren't enough. The statistics don't actually say anything about the how the internal family conflicts then develop. Are the women receiving support to develop strategies how to deal with their situations? If that was indeed part of the workshop it would be more interesting to make this clear, e.g.: "The women develop action strategies and receive ongoing support as they deal with their problems."
- They ARE relevant. The fact that this many women have been helped to strengthen their rights is a real qualitative step.
- They aren't relevant because there are still some affected women who were not reached.
