IMPACT
SUSTAINABLE DEVELOPMENT

We have  reached 300 persons within the sustainable development sector with our message. We have reached out to Ministries, Universities, private sector with and without CSR programmes, suppliers targeting SSA, the civil society, aid institutions and embassies. We have reached collaboration agreements with 200 of these persons and these persons are from the   CSR sector, givers of donations and Action10 volunteer staff.

Our operations have been focusing on Management strategies, Social entrepreneur empowerment and Serving the underserved. Less attention has so far been given to the development sector. We will from 2022 scale up the efforts to also collaborate with the development sector.

We measure impact based on our TestE strategy, thus we compile output outcome and sustainable impact based on progress markers that were developed at the design phase of the programme. Progress markers are then adjusted as lessons are learned.

We measure impact related to our four services: management strategies, support to local social entrepreneurs, serving the under-served and sustainable development
