In this project, RMIT’s Timor-Leste Research Program worked with four East Timorese NGO partners to research and evaluate the impacts of the NGOs' gender-focused projects in local communities.
Irish Aid and Trocaire, Timor-Leste
Two staff from each organisation participated as co-researchers. Each NGO has selected one project to evaluate and one locale in which to conduct fieldwork (sub-district Venilale, sub-district Ermera, sub-district Atauro and sub-district Manatuto).
The RMIT team is delivering comprehensive, ongoing training and accompanying the NGO staff throughout the entire process so as to develop capacity in gender-sensitive research and evaluation. The projects runs entirely in Tetun.
