Outline of the follow-up observations

The JWF’s main priority in funding projects is responding to onsite issues and needs in an efficient and effective way.
Since 2015, we have been carrying out follow-up observations after completion of projects in order to understand changing issues and needs.

In FY 2023, the JWF received favorable responses to its requests for follow-up observations from four of the five grass-roots organizations, in Uganda, Kenya, and India, all of which were JWF Fund 2021recipients.  Thanks to their cooperation, we were able to conduct our follow-up observations successfully.
