“SAMEA strives to cultivate a vibrant community that will support, guide and strengthen the development of monitoring and evaluation (M&E) as an important discipline, profession and instrument for empowerment and accountability in South Africa.”
The South African Monitoring and Evaluation Association (SAMEA) stands in solidarity with communities and people in KwaZulu-Natal and Gauteng affected by violence and looting. These are difficult and dark times. We need to respect the rule of law, be safe, stand together, protect our beloved country and do what we can to help those in need. We are so much better than this.
Recognising that the unrest was amongst others fuelled by social injustice and hardship, we as M&E practitioners commit ourselves to practicing our profession in a way that adds significant value to the effective, sustainable development that South Africa needs.
