How will you measure success?
First, using questionnaires addressed to all our stakeholders: Trainees; partners; sponsors; volunteers; and community agents. These will address the effectiveness and impact of our actions.
Second, we will keep a track record of the evolution of all Ladify Alumni and seek how far our training has helped them to be better people and impact the community.
Third, we will measure the number of people trained and compare it with the plans we have.
Fourth, we will form an evaluation committee made of volunteers from among the trainees, trainers and partner organisations. This committee will constantly measure and control activities of Ladify
Fifth, we will measure success based on the number of people who attend our open seminars
