DOMAINS: Education, Skilling, Disability, Gender, Water and Agriculture

“How best can social impact be achieved? “How can value be measured?”

 

We work with teams in corporate CSR, Foundations and NGOs to unpack these questions.

 

We help them - Streamline their thinking and strategic approach; Set outcome/impact expectations; Co-create programs; Take stock of ground-level changes; Develop strategies for increased program relevance, impact & sustainability

FUNDER PORTFOLIO REVIEW

Private philanthropy can play a pivotal role in improving social development indicators and in strengthening civil society.  For this, philanthropists need to consider not just their quantum of giving, but also how structured and strategic their contribution is.  Our portfolio review solutions help funders increase the impact of their giving. 

We undertake:

  • Stock-taking of grants to capture progress towards intended outcomes and impacts through secondary and primary research

  • Strategy Development to guide social investments for impact, replication and sustainability

Supporting Result-Based Giving

PROGRAM DESIGN & MONITORING

Given the complexity of the development landscape, the program design process needs to reflect reality, be iterative and collaborative.  Critical to this process is the development of a monitoring plan, which helps the answer some questions: “Did the program deliver the intended outputs? What do we need to do differently to maximise project performance?”

 

Our solutions include:

 

  • Needs Assessment to ascertain program feasibility

  • Theory of Change and Log Frameworks

  • Key Performance Indicators

  • Monitoring plan: source, frequency and tools for data collection, training of field agency and pilot testing

  • Data intelligence: periodic analysis of data, reporting of trends, gaps and opportunities

Maximizing Program Performance

PROGRAM EVALUATION

Our program evaluation solutions answer two questions: “How effective is the program? How can it be made more effective?”  We create context-specific evaluation frameworks and conduct a spectrum of assessments. Insights gleaned from this, feed into strategies for program improvement and accountability. 

 

Our evaluation suite includes:

 

  • Program Audit: to track inputs, activities and outputs vis-à-vis intended benchmarks

  • Program Assessment: a stock-taking exercise to ascertain whether the program is on the right track by capturing ground realities, short-term outputs /outcomes and stakeholder perspectives 

  • Impact Evaluation: rigorous quantitative analysis, corroborated with qualitative analysis to measure change that the intervention has brought about on the intended outcome(s) of interest.
