Philosophy of Impact Evaluation at SELCO FoundationThese evaluations double up as self assessments which provide the organization a snapshot into its overall progress and also gauge ways to improve performance. Equal emphasis is given to the impact on the end user and the manner or process through which the Foundation ultimately creates impact. It is also important to the Foundation to balance qualitative and quantitative reporting to provide meaningful inputs that are not necessarily captured by numbers.
