So They Can Policies in Kiswahili

While we’re busy with the more public facing projects at So They Can like any organisation  a lot of work goes on behind the scenes to ensure we’re implementing the best practices we can to keep the organisation up to date. This includes being aware of all the rules and regulations we need to be compliant with in all the countries we work in.

Staff across the So They Can International Alliance have been working together to ensure all of the team are up to date on all our policies.

In the spirit of our core values of Collaboration and Connectedness the team from Australia, New Zealand, Tanzania and Kenya have been reviewing and updating themselves on all the organisations polices over recent months and now after much hard work our policies are available in both English and Kiswahili.

“We’re really pleased to have policies available to all staff in both English and Kiswahili so that they can easily refer to them and access the policies should they need to,” says Teri Anderson, Country Director Tanzania.

“As a team we’re always working together to find ways to improve how we work and having these policies available in Kiswahili is going to make it so much simpler for our staff in Africa to access and implement them.”

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 week 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.
