Mobile Phone Survey Training

Posted Oct 19, 2015

Two and a half years later, the “Lazos de Agua” project is coming to an end.

Anna Pollack, Program Officer, from MWA recently visited the Aguayuda team in Riohacha, La Guajira, Colombia. The goal of the trip was to train the enumerators on how to implement the final end line surveys for the “Lazos de Agua” project. The surveys include:
• Household
• Water Committee
• Water Points
• Water Quality
• Sanitation

The enumerators for the Aguayuda team consist of three social workers and one technician. One of the additional challenges that the Aguayuda team faces is that the majority of our communities are indigenous Wayúu. Therefore, the Spanish surveys, will need to be translated verbally to Wayúunaiki (native language of the Wayúu) when giving the surveys to the communities.

The training lasted one week, which included pilot testing the surveys in two communities. The third week of October is when Aguayuda begins doing the surveys for real. It will be a busy time for the team, but in the end, the data will be important to measure the impact we have had in the communities over the last 2 and a half years.
