11-04-2009 13:21

There are many added challenges to overcome when implementing evaluations in a Third World context, ranging from technological to cultural. Cultural differences and language barriers are among the most prominent and challenging obstacles to providing a credible evaluation of any indigenous people. This article provides insights from the evaluator’s experience of overcoming these obstacles during an evaluation conducted in Mozambique, Africa, with the Sena and Ndou indigenous groups. This paper addresses the issue of cultural competence and what that means for evaluators.
