Outline of the Follow-up observations
Our priority is placed on responding to the issues and needs of the field in an efficient and effective way.
Since 2015, we have been carrying out follow-up observations one year after the completion of projects in order to understand changing issues and needs.

In FY 2020, the sixth year since we started our follow-up observations, we received responses from five of the seven grass-roots organizations in the Sierra Leone, Uganda, Kenya, Papua New Guinea and Haiti that had been granted the JWF Fund 2019 to conduct follow-up observation and we have been from the organizations in all the locations except the Lao PDR. With this cooperation, we have been able to conduct our one-year follow-up observations.
