We believe it is important to demonstrate our achievements and tell the stories of where and how our work is making a difference. It is vital that we learn where we can improve and regularly collect information that measures our progress. We must ensure that we are accountable to the people we are working to help and to the donors and agencies who entrust CARE with resources to do this work. We need to monitor and evaluate ourselves to advance programme quality, for accounting for CARE’s results and for increasing our impact.
We see impact as lasting, positive change in the lives of poor and vulnerable communities. We work in partnerships with groups and other organisations, making sure we’re working together to bring about lasting change. Our monitoring and evaluation processes help us understand the contributions CARE has made to positive changes in the lives of the communities we have worked with, and how we can help enable even greater changes in future.
Evaluation reports for most of CARE’s projects are available online, at the CARE Electronic Evaluation Library.
