Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) is an important and integral part of the Zenex Foundation funding approach. It is important to our ongoing learning, informing project design and rollout and adds to the body of evidence about education interventions. When Zenex started to embed M&E practices within the organisation, there was a high level of buy-in from the Zenex Board, who recognised the importance of this approach. Our Board have been strong proponents of M&E to drive an evidence-based strategy. Our M&E approach includes, planning and budgeting for M&E activities, developing internal M&E capacity and using evaluations for learning and influencing policy and practice in the evaluation sector.
