  • Conduct interviews with guardians of targeted learners and other community stakeholders using agreed tools and protocols
  • Ensure that mobile devises used to capture assessment and interview data are fully charged on daily basis
  • Maintain confidentiality of assessment and interview data and only share the data upon instruction from the designated supervisor
