BASELINE & IMPACT ASSESSMENTS

“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; Map community needs and the market landscape; Co-create programs; Take stock of ground-level changes; Develop strategies for increased program relevance, impact & sustainability

FUNDER PORTFOLIO REVIEW

Our portfolio review solutions help funders increase the impact of their giving by mapping how structured and strategic their contribution is.

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 Funding

NEEDS ASSESSMENT & MARKET MAP

Given the complexity of the development landscape, the program design process naturally needs to start at the core - i.e. the community to understand met and unmet needs and then zoom out to map the larger landscape for learnings, good practices and white spaces.

 

Our solutions include:

 

  • Needs Assessment through secondary data sources and detailed community needs gathering through interviews and FGDs

  • Market Map through secondary and primary data sources to understand good practices domestically and globally, case studies of learnings, expert perspectives on the future, other organizations and solutions in the space, opportunities for innovative solutions

Designing targeted solutions

PROGRAM EVALUATION

Our program evaluation solutions answer two questions: “How effective is the program? How can it be made more effective?”  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

  • Baseline Assessment: to establish pre-intervention state through quantitative and qualitative methods 

  • 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.
