The JFFLS programme was piloted in Mozambique and Kenya in 2004 and JFFLS schools have been implemented since then in Burundi, Cameroon, DRC, Gaza & West Bank, Ghana, Malawi, Namibia, Nepal, Rwanda, Sudan, Swaziland, Tanzania, Uganda, Zambia and Zimbabwe. Programme evaluations have been undertaken in five countries up to now: Mozambique, Kenya, Uganda, Sudan and Gaza & West Bank.

Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) is an important aspect to undertake in a project or programme and supports the management work to ensure compliance of its strategies, objectives and approach. It is the mechanism for which the process aspects of a programme can be tracked and accounted for, as well as its impact assessed. M&E improves programme management and implementation and builds a case for advocacy.
