How We Measure Success
In the past two years we have worked with each of our partners and an advisory committee to identify field-relevant indicators of sustained positive change. The Mona Foundation Evaluation and Monitoring Framework reflects their experiences and input, and measures each partner’s progress as indicated by program outcomes, student outcomes, and social outcomes. These indicators align with 2018 World Bank report on "LEARNING to realize education’s promise".
Improving access to education as indicated by improved infrastructure and sufficient supplies; increase in number of students enrolled; and increase caregiver and community engagement in education.
Improving teaching and learning as indicated by increase in teachers skills and knowledge; increase in number of students who pass national exams, and increase in number of students who transition to the next level of education or into work.
Transformed communities, as indicated by most significant change stories as qualitative examples of sustained change, realized a result of improvement in students' character development, life skills and service to community.
