Our Data Collection, M & E Team are on ground in all the States & will monitor, track and report distribution along withe our NGO Partners. As you know, we can’t work with everyone so we’ve selected few NGOs across communities through a rigorous verification exercise & we’ll ensure that they stick with their mandates based on the signed MOUs our Programs Team have put in place with them.
