GMKONSULT LTD 
 is an initiative of Lola Visser-Mabogunje, a Nigerian in Diaspora. GMKONSULT is a dynamic and innovative Project Cycle Management, Budget Planning, Budget Implementation, Monitoring and Evaluation and Strategic Management consultancy firm. The company is registered with the Corporate Affairs Commission of Nigerian.

OUR VISION

To play a key role in the practice of development management and a functioning and effective monitoring and evaluation system in Nigeria

MISSION STATEMENT


GMKONSULT believes that reliance on foreigners and foreign training organizations to help build our national capacities in Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) will not lead to the required sustainable local capacity nor is this approach well suited to adapting M&E training to Nigeria's situation and experience

INSTITUTIONAL GOALS

To work in tandem with policy-makers, legislators, government officials, parastatals, local government councils, non-government organizations, community-based organizations and professional associations to: 

  • raise awareness for the need to have M&E as an integral part of project design;
  • provide appropriate training programmes in M&E tools and techniques (logical framework, resource-based management, performance monitoring indicators, poverty monitoring, programme evaluation, participatory stakeholder evaluation, impact assessment, cost-benefit analysis, policy analysis, cost-effective research methodology);
  • encourage Nigeria and Nigerians to regard evaluation as a learning process and not as a "witch hunting exercise";
  • encourage increased citizens' ability to monitor and challenge abuses of the system through collaborative activities with the Nigeria Network of NGOs (NNNGOs);
  • engage the National University Commission in dialogue on the need to include Project Cycle Management and Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) as one of the elective courses in Social Sciences;
  • provide advice, as appropriate, to various legislative bodies in an effort to enhance their oversight functions.
