Monitering and Evaluation
Tinashe Mandikonza is a Monitoring and Evaluation Officer who has been with CATHCA for three years and is experienced in maintaining monitoring systems for CATHCA programmes through the creation of monitoring plans, logframes, theory of change and measuring the impact. Her journey with CATHCA has been a great learning curve for she also gained project management skills and is now an accredited assessor and facilitator. Working in a faith-based organisation has also taught her that being of service to others is the ultimate gift that one can offer especially in helping people in our marginalised community health circles.
“It was a great privilege to work with Archbishop Hurley, one of the unsung heroes and saints of South Africa.”
“My experience working in a non-profit environment has taught me how to build strong relationships with all the departments at all organisations I worked for. I am grateful about joining CATHCA and the opportunities it provides to the disadvantaged communities.”
