Over the years, our program model has been proven through design thinking and adaptive leadership methodologies where most of the youth and women that graduate out of our program create sustainable innovative solutions in their communities. We continue to monitor and measure our long-term impact based on key program outcomes,
We plan to conduct a rigorous quasi-experimental evaluation in the near future to establish impact created in the communities based on our control (Comparison) and treatment groups
Social Venture Created
Women & Youth Trained
Lives Impacted Through Social Ventures
Becoming Program Impact
Our alumni have gone ahead to launch social ventures tailored to post-harvest reduction, sustainable farming, market access for small-scale farmers, waste management, access to clean water and renewable energy
Our Monitoring and Evaluation approach explores two core functions, firstly monitoring where we continuously and systematically collect data and periodically assess our program implementation and performance of activities based on the key performance indicators for our core programs: Social Enterprise & Innovations Incubator and Becoming. Secondly, our evaluation involves rigorous periodic assessment of our beneficiaries in both programs done in phases at baseline, midline and endline to learn about our program model effectiveness, efficiency, relevance, sustainability and impact created through our community model.
We track our progress through a project management system that enables us to automate the reporting process through online dashboards keeping track of our key performance indicators across the result chain framework in near real time. Our field staff use a smartphone reporting system which enables us to access real time data on key performance i ndicators from different communities allowing us conduct timely analysis and make key informed strategic implementation decisions.
Our adaptive strategy focuses on the baseline and endline Evaluations conducted by external independent research firms. This enables us to measure the before and after our program interventions. The first point enables us to assess the characteristics of our beneficiaries before the intervention, the second point is to compare outcomes and changes realized through our design thinking and adaptive leadership methodologies under the Social Enterprise & Innovations Incubator Program. Additionally, we also run feedback surveys to our beneficiaries, which enables us to learn immediately what’s working well and how we can maximize on that in terms of program design, delivery and quality maximizing our impact.
