Project Results

What gets measured gets done.
If you don't measure results, you can't tell success from failure.
If you can't see success, you can't reward it.
If you can't reward success, you're probably rewarding failure.
If you can't see success, you can't learn from it.
If you can't recognize failure, you can't correct it.
If you can demonstrate results, you can win public support.

Making a difference matters to you and to us. To ensure our programs and projects achieve what they set out to do, ABF employs a monitoring and evaluation (M&E) framework that defines what we want to accomplish, tracks progress, and assesses project results. This allows us to determine when a program is on track and when adjustments are necessary. Above all, through M&E, we learn why things happen in a particular way. Continual learning helps us stay flexible and respond to dynamic challenges—ultimately leading to increased impact over time.

The lessons learned from our results-based monitoring and evaluation system inform not only our work; we are also committed to sharing this knowledge with our partners in government, business, and the NGO community to help build their capacity. Our grantees and partners benefit from a variety of training opportunities and publications on the topic. Visit our Resources Page for access to useful publications.

Key findings about our programs are presented in the evaluation reports below.
