Event reminder: UoM Symposium of the Street – 6th June 3-4pm (Uni of Manchester)

3 – 4 pm Cordingley Lecture Theatre, Humanities Bridgeford Street 
Friday June 6th 

At the UoM Symposium of the Street (http://uomsymposiumofthestreet.wordpress.com/) there will be a session on the use of data for monitoring and evaluation.

Eleanor Harrison of Global Giving UK and Marc Maxsom of Global Giving will be talking about their Storytelling Project that helps them to maintain the feedback loops that are crucial to building and developing successful social projects. The Storytelling Project is promoted as an affordable approach to monitoring and evaluation.
Jo Wakia of Retrak will be discussing the use of the Child Status Index to measure the well-being of street-connected children, in order to track individual progress, and how deprivation analysis is used to describe the situations of street-connected children and evaluate interventions.
I would like to open the session up to those who are interested in learning about these instruments and their application for academic research and organisational programming.
