Message from the Chairperson
Every three years, The Evaluation Society of Kenya thorough it’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) holds Board elections. It is a time to identify new ideas, welcome new board members, populate new committees, and embrace new challenges. I felt incredibly fortunate to have accepted the Chair’s mandate for 2020 -2022 at our AGM dated 6th December 2019.
ESK Core Values
Message from the Founder
ESK’s institutional evolution is a classic case of the adage, “do not despise small beginnings”. From very humble beginnings, I founded the Society with the support of the government’s Monitoring & Evaluation Department (MED) and a team of dedicated M&E practitioners. The efforts were a follow-up action on the recommendations of a meeting held by African representatives at the 2008 International Program for Development Evaluation Training (IPDET) in Canada, which I attended.
Mission & Vision Statement
To promote professionalization, capacity building, advocacy, utilization and sound governance of Monitoring, Evaluation and Research practice.
High quality, responsive and innovative Monitoring, Evaluation and Research evidence culture and practice nationally, regionally and globally.
