Why focus on evaluation?

We believe that evaluation can capture the hard work of people, programs and communities and lead to improved, sustainable programming.

We believe that evaluation is a means to:

    • Learn about how a particular model works
    • Learn whether and how program improvements can be made each year
    • Inform program planning and funding

We believe evaluation is NOT:

    • about judging success vs. failure
    • about program inspection
    • measured against fixed goals
