Monitoring and evaluation guidance has been drafted to help Friendship Grant recipients with their reporting to DFAT. It is also provided here so that you and your in-country community partners are aware of how DFAT expects you to collect data to report on the progress of your Activity and explain the change(s) that occurred in the community as a result.
