Abstract: In 2005 a total of 323 questionnaires were completed for IICD-supported ICT projects in the sectors of livelihoods and education in Tanzania. The results were discussed amongst the project partners during a Focus Group meeting in November 2005. This report reflects on the learning points of the data and analysis discussed during this meeting. As the M&E system has been in place for some years now, the results of projects and trainings over the years can be compared. The data showed a general improvement in gender balance and increased satisfaction rates of end users for all projects. For most projects, over 80% of respondents claim to have reached their personal goals. Impact has been diminishing somewhat in the livelihoods sector since 2003 (awareness has come down from 89% in 2003, to 69% in 2005), which may have something to do with the maturity of the projects. Over time, awareness of respondents is known to diminish a little in all sectors. It was also estimated that projects in Tanzania are now reaching over one million people.
