The Cedar Foundation Tanzania chose Magpi to collect baseline data on the current views and opinions on Violence Against Women (VAW) in Kamanga, a small village on the shores of Lake Victoria, Tanzania.
This data will be used as part of the monitoring and evaluation of The Cedar Foundation’s implementation of SASA!, a violence prevention programme from their partners Raising Voices in Kampala, Uganda (www.raisingvoices.org).
Using Magpi to collect and collate the data made the process a lot less arduous and much quicker. It is very user friendly and the researchers were surprised at just how efficient it was to use on their smart phones. The instructional videos on the website helped greatly at the beginning of the process and the support received when making an enquiry was swift and efficient.
At strategic points throughout the delivery of SASA!, The Cedar Foundation Tanzania will use Magpi to collect and collate follow up data to review the progress of SASA! and the change in community norms regarding VAW.
