Monitoring and Assessment of the "Let Us Sell Goods" - Livelihood Project for the Badjao Community 2015-2018
After the 1st year of project implementation, the next step for the Badjao Community Livelihood Cooperative Program (BCLCP) will be in monitoring and assessing its level of impact in changing lives and reducing poverty (sustainable livelihood) for the next 3 years (2015-2018).
Monitoring and Assessment will be conducted every six (6) months and a corresponding Evaluation Report will be provided. On the third year, a transition will be completed and Frontline Foundation will exit from the Badjao Community Development program.

- To determine its relevance, efficiency, effectiveness and sustainability
- To guide Frontline Foundation decision makers and program managers in reproducing successful programs

- To assist learning about community development and future livelihood programs.
