Monitoring progress

A check was made by regional co-ordinators and then administration staff in the central Durban office prior to the establishment of a learning class, of the facilitator’s matriculation certificate, identity document, application form, name lists and availability of the expected twenty learners, and venue. Broad-based monitoring of quality and other matters was carried out by recruited community members, who gave assistance and support without any financial recompense other than a modest travel allowance. They met once a month at district level, with an exceptionally high rate of attendance evident at meetings. Minutes were kept to record their insights. Every three months a provincial level meeting was held, with major issues discussed and resolved in a democratic way.
