Our program benefits 10,000-15,000 students each year, the majority of them attending weekly lessons. Every year, we carry out impact evaluations to collect information about our programs and to assess the impacts of our interventions.
Evaluations are done employing different methodologies. For example, we conduct pre- and post-speaking assessment to evaluate students’ progress in English. We also collect data through the distribution of ‘pre-program’ (or baseline) and ‘post-program’ (or follow-up) survey questionnaires to ask a variety of questions to assess, for instance, students’ confidence and interest in English and digital literacy, or teachers’ perceptions of the improvement in their teaching skills.
Our impact evaluations confirm the verbatim feedback we gather from our stakeholders, showing that students who participate in our program show increased interest and confidence in their studies, which improves their access to educational and work opportunities in the future. Additionally, students are exposed to different cultures, and get early exposure to volunteer programs and volunteering spirit.
