If you are an NGO or entrepreneur working directly with the beneficiaries, this is a workshop helping you set up the key elements for a social impact strategy. For an organization interested in understanding and measuring the social impact of its projects, the key step begins with tools which outline reasons why we do activities we do, what we expect to achieve with them and what is the actual outcome on the field. This workshop will help you revisit your reasons for social impact, your stakeholders, your value proposition, activities outputs and outcomes. Over the two sessions, you will be working individually and in groups to fine-tune your strategy by digging deep into the key elements. The tools will help you gain clarity on what is needed for social impact strategy and for building a strong case for attracting funding. Besides intense work with the tools, you will also complete a practical exercise to practice getting the buy-in from the other stakeholders and investors. Only with a full clarity and focus on impact, you can strengthen the understanding, expectations, communication and evaluation of success.
