DAAD Alumni are the 2020 African Region Champions of the WECC

Our DAAD Alumni (Langton Moyo, Melisa Dlamini, Evans Sakyi Boadu and Philip Nyasha Fungurai) are the 2020 African Region Champions of the World Evaluation Case Competition (WECC). In this annual competition targeting Young Emerging Evaluators (YEE) from across the globe, our Alumni were representing South Africa, through the University of the Western Cape, and competed against 16 teams from across the world including Bangladesh, Belgium, Canada, the Czech Republic, Denmark, France, India, Italy, Mexico, United Kingdom, Yemen and the United States of America. The African countries that took part in the competition comprised of South Africa, Kenya, Morocco and Cameroon, with students from the International Relations Institute of Cameroon, Daystar University, Maseno University and National Forestry School of Engineering.

As part of the competition, they had to prepare a Program Evaluation Proposal for the Blue Dragon Children’s Foundation project on ''How to curb the spread of Human Trafficking in Vietnam during the Covid-19 Pandemic'', targeting Sustainable Development Goal 5, 8 and 16.

Congratulations!
