Evidence-based impact

HR&S provides training on social enterprising and accountability management for local entrepreneurs in Sub-Saharan Africa. One component of the programme is investment capital that is combined with local coaching and auditing. The investment capital has to be paid back with 10% interest, as well as a fee of 10 % for the local coaching.
A potential loan-taker has to take training composed of two steps, a seminar with an exam, and a workshop with a presentation of the participant’s own business model. The participants pay euro 10 for each step.

HR&S also offers scientific research and laboratory management coaching targeting academic institutions in Sub-Saharan Africa and programme management coaching for development institutions.

Local support teams

Programmes have been successfully implemented, evidence for impact has been secured, and lessons learned compiled. HR&S managed twenty programmes in twelve Sub-Saharan countries. The work during 2019 has targeted the strengthening of local support teams, including auditing, monitoring and coaching on efficiency, planning, transparency and accountability. Financially, HR&S still depends on founder investment and volunteer work, why we earnestly seek income opportunities.
