IMPACT

“What makes me so proud and satisfied is seeing my women coworkers improving themselves. Before we always depended on men. Not anymore. Now we are capable of doing anything."

Trickle Up measures the impact and effectiveness of our program by focusing on the changes people experience in their quality of life as a result. We work in partnership with local organizations, global institutions, and governments, focusing on how to scale what works.

We ask four questions that help us define and measure success:

  1. Do women and their families enjoy a better quality of life, including more and better food intake, and improved access to health care?

  2. Are they building livelihoods that are dignified, diversified, productive and sustainable?

  3. Do they have access to fair and effective means of saving money and accessing credit?

  4. Are women and other vulnerable people making significant progress as decision-makers in their households and communities?
