Our Model | The How
With support from its founding donor a detailed community data analysis of the households and local stakeholders was conducted. This was the first step in designing needs-based interventions.
Jika Uluntu successfully delivers numerous community activities for the children and their families. These interventions are measured by a comprehensive monitoring, evaluation and reporting system which enables the capturing of qualitative and quantitative data at an individual and household level. This enables informed periodic review and reliable measurement of short term and long-term results.
