How do we measure progress?

The Theory of Change underpins the Monitoring & Evaluation (M&E) Framework of GIRLS Inspire. It acts as a visual compass of how change will take place during the project, while the M&E Framework measures how effective this change actually is, at every stage of the project. We use a results-based management M&E strategy which demands evidence of outcomes achieved, and as a result, serves as a tool for accountability. On this page you can access data which we recorded to see how change is taking place over time and over varying geographic regions.
