The work we do could not exist without partnerships. With more than 400 partnerships in our portfolio, we impact the lives of millions of people throughout the world.
We know that understanding the success of these partnerships depends on our ability to measure progress toward our goals.
But we don’t just measure; we learn and adapt based on what we find.
Working with our partners, we tailor our evaluation approach to each program, taking into account the development stage of the initiative, the region or country where it is taking place, and its scale and scope.
Along the way, we are committed to supporting the capacity of our partners to measure program results. We then work closely with them to interpret the data collected as a team.
What we find is put to use: The data collected help us shape the overall strategy for the Global Community Impact group and to aid in the design of specific programs and initiatives. These insights enable us to modify our programs, sometimes even before they’ve been completed.
Through this collaborative approach to evaluation, we are able to hold ourselves accountable to our commitments, and use the insights gathered in collaboration with our partners. This allows us to continuously improve on our goal of impacting and enhancing people’s lives.
