Enumerators training for the Integrated Platform on Gender Based Violence Prevention and Response project
A three days enumerators training was held at SWN from 3rd to 5th February for Integrated Platform on Gender Based Violence Prevention and Response Project. Fourteen empowered women were selected as enumerators who participated in the training. In presence of our core team along with staff members of NWC and World Bank, the enumerators were given a general overview on the objective of annual monitoring and end-line and indicators of the study. The session included discussion about sex, gender, inequality, prevalence and understanding of gender-based violence in Nepal. SWN explained about the importance of rapport building and importance of following ethical guidelines as a researcher to discuss about sensitive topics like Gender Based Violence in the community. The training included discussion on Focus Group Discussion (FGD) and Key Informant Interview (KII) checklists. All the tools were presented in detail to the enumerators which included mock exercises and practice sessions. Participants were given the opportunity to practice community survey utilizing ODK collect. As a result, to these practice sessions enumerators were able to make their suggestions and recommendations on improving the survey techniques and questionnaires. The training has proved to be enormously impactful and was widely appreciated by the enumerators, World Bank and NWC staffs.
