We will regularly feature different pieces of research led by REL. The first of these is an organisational impact assessment.
The study focused on four country/regional programmes, and explored a variety of assessment methodologies:
Community leader Fatima and youth leader Jose from the Department of Morazan have been working successfully with Christian Aid partner, Iniciativa Social para la Democracia (ISD), to develop their ability to hold the local government to account and to advocate for the rights of women and young people.
The film tracks the journey of volunteer community leader Marco and his plans to build a cultural centre in his neighbourhood. It also roots his story in the wider political context, explaining how Metafora influenced the government policy that has made the new cultural centres possible.
By using different methodological approaches we were able to deepen our understanding of the types of evidence that can be produced through alternative approaches and engage staff in thinking more deeply about the choices they are making about how to evidence their work.
