Evaluation is important to ensuring your programs are making an impact. Even if you think things are going well, an evaluation will help you assess if you are meeting the needs of your participants and making a difference.
Evaluation can help you:
- Identify whether or not you are meeting your goals, impact or outcomes;
- Improve the efficiency and cost-effectiveness of your program delivery;
- Provide data for partners and funders to encourage increased investment; and
- Identify your next steps.
