Measuring impact is at the core of IkamvaYouth's effectiveness. By tracking, reporting and analysing data from attendance to academic results and post-school opportunity access, we can measure whether or not what we're doing is working. Reporting our impact is also the most important element in being able to access funding, and so without rigorous and robust monitoring and evaluation (M&E) tools and processes, we are unable to assess our usefulness or access funds.

For an introduction to M&E, have a look at this Beginner's Guide produced by one of our funders, the Learning Trust.
