“Before the workshop, I’ve heard that “the MSC technique was introduced as a participatory M&E that requires no professional skills compared to other M&E technique which we’re using”. But from the experience of IPHC, we understood that facilitation, listening and note-taking skills are required.”

“The MSC technique is a right tool for the marginalized community to evaluate if the interventions were effective or not for them. Besides, it is very effective technique for us, the project implementer, to reach deep into the community people and to listen to their real feelings.”

It was very nice and helpful for us to learn and exchanged from the experiences about MSC tools for M&E. Although MSC has many steps to follow, it became clear about the whole pictures when IPHC shared their experiences. We would like to use it for a mid-term evaluation of our project.”
