Services

Valuing Voices offers the following to foster services for Sustained Impacts:

Based on decades of experience in funding, designing, implementing, monitoring and evaluating and advocating for non-profit, for-profit, public and foundation clients in global development, plus 6 years of research on sustainability, the Valuing Voices team offers:

–  Guidance and consulting advice on ex-post project evaluations;

–  Proposal design, advice on implementation for sustainability, and evaluation of projected sustainability with our participants and partners at final evaluation;

–  Presentations at conferences and webinars, advocating for more funding for adaptive sustained development projects;

–  Partnering with NGO and finance experts support development (I)NGOs to tap into new financing through impact investing and by adding INGOs M&E impact value for the SDGs at impactguild.org

  • Guidance and consulting advice on ex-post project evaluations involves expertise in determining which projects can be evaluated, using what methods (we typically recommend a mix of quantitative and qualitative, ideally with a comparison group), how to ‘isolate’ outcomes and impacts, and how to evaluate what emerged after donors left.
  • Proposal design, advise on implementation for sustainability, and evaluation of projected sustainability with our participants and partners at final evaluation. While doing final evaluations, we can work with communities to track their own indicators of sustainability, and with partners to track capacities built continuing and new ones emerging. Local and national governments, as well as other donors,  can monitor progress and ideally, spontaneous scaleup.
  • Presenting at conferences and webinars, advocate for more funding for adaptive sustained development projects. Advocating for successful sustainability being the trigger for exit rather than fixed-term project spending is key, as is adapting implementation based on resources, partnerships, capacities, benchmarks, etc.
  • Partnering with NGO and finance experts support development (I)NGOs to tap into new financing through impact investing and by adding INGOs M&E impact value for the SDGs at ImpactGuild.org. As public foreign aid diminishes and private sector strives to respond responsibly via ESG investments, identifying local investments and tracking results is imperative. With CSR, Finance and M&E backgrounds, we can advise.

We believe country-led development with excellent sustained impacts comes from listening to participant voices before, during and long after projects end, designing and implementing with them as experts. “Sustainable” Development depends on our decisions and actions.
