Social Impact Project for Transforming a Manual Child Development Assessment Tool

How This Works

As part of the TRANSFORM Support Hub, you will learn how to advance your career while getting hands on experience on projects like this one.

Project Description and Impact

We designed a monitoring and evaluation tool that evaluates and observes each child's progress as they receive arts education empowerment from our organisation. The observation happens over a given period according to 5 areas 1) creative development, 2) emotional development, 3) social interaction skills, 4) general development, and 5) Self-efficacy. The tool is working well but because of the manual way of entering data, some information about a child goes missing or is not perfectly interpreted, and above all, very tedious considering our strategy to scale. We are looking for technical support to enable us to develop a system that understands the manual tool we have and re-engineers it to be ready for digital use. It should be a tool easy to use for our facilitators (to collect data) and also collect information that is easy to analyse and navigate by the organization. Also, it is important to have a clear overview and evidence of the impact through data analysis to showcase to external stakeholders as well as to learn how the impact our program is having on a child so that we can respond accordingly.
