Record of MANGO Project , 2001-2003

MANGO stands for Map-based Analysis for Non-formal Education Goals and Outcomes.
  MANGO Project is a regional project by ACCU and UNESCO APPEAL to develop computer software and handbooks for analysis of progress in the achievement of NFE goals at the project and community levels. The duration of this project is 3-year from 2001 to 2003.

Expected users:
  Project managers and supervisors at the project/district level,
Community leaders and other stakeholders at the community level,
Facilitators and learners at learning centre level.
The software will support monitoring non-formal learning activities by visually presenting comprehensive information of learning centre:
  Village/community socio-economic and education profile
Learner information
Facilitator information
Centre information
Skills and enterprise development
Management of project
Library facilities and services

Information will be presented in various visual formats to grasp the situation in one glance. For example, geographic maps, diary/stories of learners, tables and graphs of quantitative data, interview recordings, photo/video of learning centre, etc.
