Our social impact indicator  model is based on an adaptation of the ‘logic model’  used by  organisations such as The Impact Management Project and The Centre for Social Impact Strategy. Our framework looks at; Input, activities, output, outcomes and sustainable  impact. The model enables us to clarify and guide the intervention strategies and outcomes we identify by;

  • Helping us define problems associated with poverty and identifying the  root causes (lack of education, limited access to healthcare, unemployment, etc.) to better understand the complexity of the issues and design targeted interventions.
  • Assist us in outlining the necessary inputs and resources required to implement poverty alleviation programs effectively by identifying the funding, human capital, partnerships, and other resources needed to carry out our planned activities.
  • Aids in designing and implementing appropriate activities and interventions and a clear roadmap for the actions needed to address the identified causes of poverty, such as skill development, access to finance, and social safety nets.
