Queen Temitope Enitan Ogunwusi, the Deputy Convener of Hopes Alive Initiative for Africa (HAI), has successfully concluded a transformative short course on Monitoring and Evaluation for Humanitarian Programs at the prestigious Harvard Humanitarian Initiative (HHI). The course, which took place at HHI's renowned campus, Cambridge, Massachusetts provided Queen Ogunwusi with invaluable knowledge and skills to enhance the impact of HAI's projects across Africa, in line with global standards, best practices, and the United Nations Millennium Development Goals (MDGs).


The Monitoring and Evaluation for Humanitarian Programs Workshop offered by HHI is widely recognized as a leading platform for professionals in the humanitarian sector seeking to improve the effectiveness and sustainability of their initiatives. The workshop provided Queen Ogunwusi with an immersive learning experience focused on monitoring and evaluating humanitarian programs.

The training also emphasized the importance of meeting the United Nations' MDGs, which serve as a blueprint for achieving sustainable development worldwide.



Throughout the course, Queen Ogunwusi had the opportunity to work with esteemed individuals as a team from prominent organizations such as the Penny Appeal USA, United States Agency for International Development (USAID), the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF), and the World Health Organization (WHO). Together, they embarked on a case study project focusing on how Penny Appeal USA implements Solar Power Water Centers across three countries (Pakistan, Bangladesh and Afghanistan). This real-world project presented an ideal opportunity for Queen Ogunwusi to acquire practical insights and strategies to improve the implementation, evaluation, and sustainability of similar endeavors carried out by HAI in Africa.


With a newfound understanding of monitoring and evaluation methodologies, Queen Ogunwusi aims to revolutionize the way HAI engages with underserved communities.
