Helpful ideas for project planning, monitoring and evaluation

Project planning guidelines

There are few useful resources we can recommend on the subject of project planning. However, Tear Fund have prepared a series of guidelines on a variety of subjects, including Guidelines for Planning and Implementing Relief and Development Activities. This is a step-by-step, four-page guide to all the different stages involved in project planning.

If you would find a copy helpful in your work, please write to Lynne Partridge at Tear Fund’s Overseas Department at the address below.

We cannot possibly include all readers who are working in particular subjects or translating various languages. However here are some selected addresses of people who have agreed to act as contacts for others in their geographical area or for people translating the same language. They have been sent lists of other folk in their area and so can pass on information. It is always helpful to write or meet with others involved in similar work so we would encourage you to make contact.

Please include a stamped addressed envelope when you write - otherwise you may not receive a reply. If you are working with one of the language groups, please write giving details of the type of material you translate and include some examples of your work.

Please remember that these people are working on a voluntary basis - so do not expect too much of their time!

Let us know if you would be interested in acting as a contact, either for your own subject or for a particular language (especially Hausa, Thai and Tamil), and we will publish another list of addresses in a future issue.
