Monitoring and Evaluation
Samahi Research has conducted evaluations on numerous thematic areas for NGOs and UN agencies. Our work on evaluations is guided by expertise in evaluation methodological approaches that respond to key evaluations questions, drawing information from empirical research and existing programme M&E systems. Our three-tiered approach focuses on consolidating information at the data collection stage, analysing and synthesizing data into meaningful information that is then presented using appropriate reporting techniques to the variety of reporting audiences. This approach is suitable for national NGOs, international NGOs, Donor agencies and other players engaged in development work.

Random Case Study
On the other hand, we denounce with righteous indignation and dislike men who are so beguiled and demoralized by the charms of pleasure of the moment, so blinded by desire, that they cannot foresee the pain and trouble that are bound to ensue; and equal blame belongs to those who fail in their duty through weakness of will, which is the same as saying through shrinking from toil and pain. These cases are perfectly simple and easy to distinguish. In a free hour, when our power of choice is untrammelled and when nothing prevents our being able to do what we like best, every pleasure is to be welcomed and every pain avoided. But in certain circumstances and owing to the claims of duty or the obligations of business it will frequently occur that pleasures have to be repudiated and annoyances accepted. The wise man therefore always holds in these matters to this principle of selection: he rejects pleasures to secure other greater pleasures, or else he endures pains to avoid worse pains.
