The Sikhay Kilos Development Association, Inc. through the Research and Extension for Development Office (REDO) conducted a four day live-out training entitled, “Participatory Monitoring and Evaluation (PME) of Development Projects”. This was held last July 16 to 19, 2013 at the UP-CSWCD Seminar Room where 19 participants from different agencies both local and foreign attended. The training course aimed to enhance the understanding and capabilities of participants in developing appropriate participatory monitoring and evaluation systems for their respective community projects and programs.

Maslang, Dr. Emmanuel M. Luna, and Prof. Jocelyn T. Caragay all lend their expertise for the success of the PME Training in which the end goal was for the participants to create a PME design relevant to their projects.
