APPEH recognises the importance of monitoring and evaluation of all its projects. Thus it funded Dr Emily Steele (who had earlier evaluated the visit of Palestinian educators Malak and Iman to Australia), to visit Lebanon in October 2012. Emily’s main roles were to evaluate the APPEH English Language Textbook Support Project, explore options for APPEH to continue their supportive role in Palestinian educational activities, and collaborate with AVI volunteers Shazleen Lateef and Samar Habib about possible future projects.
Emily also met with AVI Regional Manager, Cassandra Mathie, to discuss the ongoing partnership with AVI, UNRWA and APPEH and the opportunities for program support and development. A summary of her report will be posted shortly.
