Always on the way
Learning how to do things better is at the heart of our culture. We believe there are always ways to improve, so we can increase our impact for people and the planet.
As part of this, we use monitoring and evaluation to learn with our partners and with other funders. We ask our partners to consider lessons from research and evaluations when they apply for funding from us. We live our value “renew and improve” by commissioning independent evaluations of our work.
We’re open to sharing what we’ve learned and what our partners have achieved through our investments.
