 Activities:

Social Impact is part of a consortium of organizations working under FHI 360’s Leader Award. In this capacity, SI contributes to SCS Global through a variety of Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (MEL) activities. Most recently, SI produced a Research Agenda that synthesizes MEL approaches and evidence for capacity development; proposes preliminary questions for a Learning Agenda; and identifies capacity development measurement tools and their varying approaches and characteristics to help fill knowledge gaps in capacity development measurement. Currently, SI is developing a manual for selecting capacity development measurement tools. The manual will serve as a guide for program designers, who can use it to select the most appropriate tools and methodologies for planning and measuring their work to strengthen civil society.
