Your coaches can help. They also commented that all the topics were well chosen and will be very useful to Kenya and possibly beyond. As well they noted that all three projects were very practical , had good focus on community and well fit the Sustainable Development Goals. For all three proposals they need to ensure as far as possible to capture quality data . Data that is sloppy and missing responses means the conclusions maybe spurious. Hence the importance in methods to think hard about how to ensure as high quality data as possible is collected.
