Families Matter! Parent Trainings For DREAMS

Monitoring and Evaluation plan

Full, individual-level datasets and summary statistics on Families Matter! enrollment and participation (# of groups, retention in each group) are due to I-TECH every other week. In addition when groups begin the parent demographic forms are due to I-TECH within one week.

Scope of Work

With funding provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) through an award to the University of Washington/I-TECH, for which Gabrielle O’Malley is the Principle Investigator (PI), this sub-award is undertaken for ChangeAgent to implement Families Matter! trainings for parents of adolescent girls aged 9-14 enrolled in DREAMS in the Khomas and Zambezi regions. ChangeAgent, the business wing of LifeLine/ChildLine Namibia, brings expertise in the area of parent training and will plan, coordinate, and implement Families Matter! with close supervision of Families Matter! training facilitators. High fidelity to the Families Matter! training is required, including proper facilitation, engagement of parents, and adherence to the curriculum, so close collaboration is required.

Objectives

  2. Implement at least 3 waves of Families Matter! trainings reaching at least 300 parents/caregivers per wave of adolescent girls aged 9-14 enrolled in DREAMS in the Khomas region between January and September 2019.
  3. Implement at least 3 waves of Families Matter! trainings reaching at least 120 parents/caregivers per wave of adolescent girls aged 9-14 enrolled in DREAMS in the Zambezi region between January and September 2019.
  4. Develop and implement Families Matter demand creation activities in Khomas and Zambezi regions, such as radio and television advertisements, community outreach activities, flyers and posters, and church, school and business outreach.
