What does it mean to truly listen: A SolarAid podcast

Kat Harrison, 60 Decibels, and Tokozile Ngwenya, SolarAid, talk about the importance of listening to the people working on the ground.

Kat Harrison, Director at 60 Decibels, and Tokozile Ngwenya, Monitoring and Evaluation specialist working with SolarAid in Zambia, explore how they’re involving rural communities in development work, what we can learn from it, and why this is crucial for change driven organizations.

Why is Monitoring and Evaluation vital for change driven organisations and what does it mean to really listen to the people we work with on the ground? What can we learn from involving rural communities when we innovate to drive change, and what are some preconceptions development organisations often bring with them into the field?

In this episode of Permission to Fail we hear from Kat Harrison, Director at 60 Decibels and Tokozile Ngwenya, Monitoring and Evaluation specialist working with SolarAid in Zambia.
