Verification Focus Group in Odek, Uganda

Posted by on Jan 2, 2014 in News | One Comment

Last month, I had the opportunity to travel with EPI’s Ugandan partner, the Justice and Reconciliation Project (JRP), to the community of Odek to participate in its verification focus group.

In the meeting, representatives from the previous three focus groups (men, women and youth) each reflected on the indicators that had emerged, and ranked them from 1 to 10. After sharing those indicators with the whole group, participants voted for their own personal top 10 indicators and agreed upon a final list to be included in the community-wide EPI survey.

The final list of indicators for Odek is currently being put into survey form, and we expect to conduct the first survey there in early March 2014.

Here are a few photos that show the Odek verification focus group process in action:
