So They Can commits to accountability

We want to be one of the most trustworthy non-profit organisations in Australasia, and we want to know how everything we do is helping our partner communities.

It is important for any non-profit organisation to know exactly what is working so we can focus our attention on projects that deliver great results. We also need to know which
projects are not working, so we can improve or stop them.

We are designing a new system to capture the most important data and measure our success.

“We need to identify successes and gaps.” – Wilson Kaijage, So They Can Tanzania MEL Officer.

Last month representatives from So They Can International, So They Can Kenya, and So They Can Tanzania gathered with international experts in Arusha, Tanzania for a 2 day
Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (MEL) workshop hosted by Penny Verdich, Growth Coaching International and Terri Anderson, STC International Tanzania Country Director
and MEL Manager.

“Monitoring and evaluation cannot be separated from accountability.” – Elizabeth Kisio, So They Can Kenya MEL Officer

Attendees created a template for the new system which will measure data at the beginning, middle and end of each So They Can project. Ongoing staff training and organisational
evaluation will make sure these systems get better and better. Measuring and proving our achievements will help us give children access to quality
education. It will also give our donors and partners confidence in our performance.
