Thanks Scott

Thanks Scott, this is indeed great info. I'm just starting out on the Project keeping children sfe in S.Africa, and I'm stuck with tips on evaluation and monitoring - so this resource came through just in time for me to take in a lot of info which i can put in place even before the training starts.....Thank you.
