Theory of Change- Categories of Impact Measures
From Vulnerability to Sustainability. Heifer believes that it significantly contributes to feeding the world and securing sustainable
livelihoods, by enhancing the capacity of vulnerable and smallholder farmers especially women. These accompanied by strong social
capital and women’s empowerment will have multiplier effects and result in a sustainable reduction in world hunger and poverty
Factors contributing to poverty and hunger:
Marginalization, gender discrimination, lack of access to resources and services, lack of diversified livelihood opportunities, vulnerability, low income, and environmental
degradation

How Heifer assesses overall organizational impacts
Organizational level (annual):
• Finance audits (internal & external)
• Staff performance appraisal
• Identified programs/project evaluations
• Leadership performance management
assessment
How HITz assess overall organizational impacts cont..
Project level:
• Annual Implementation Plans
• Sustainable livelihoods assessments
• Baseline surveys
• Outcome mapping
• Impact project’s monitoring during
implementation, NOT at the end
• Success stories for learning
• Participatory self-review and planning
• Joint stakeholder review meetings
Why HITz decided to assess organizational impact?
• Need for triple accountability
• Need to get informed and transform
• Need to document lesson learned for replicating
and/or scaling up
• Need to be a fundamental lead in reducing hunger
and poverty through integrated livestock
enterprises
Note:
Inform is getting relevant, reliable and accurate information .
Transform is using the information to facilitate positive changes.
Who are involved in collecting/analyzing data?
• Project staff at field levels
• Monitoring and Evaluation Project Officers
• Clusters’ (Regional) Managers
• Project Planning, Monitoring, Evaluation & Learning
Manager at country Office
• Identified consultants (periodically)
How results can be achieved
-Through intensive integrated livestock husbandry
improvement theoretical and practical training
-Through placement of genetic potential livestock
spices suiting specific environment
- Adequate extension services to farmers by either
government or Private Public Partnership
- Through readiness (able and willingness) of
smallholder farmers to attitudinal change for
adopting new skills and technologies
How information is shared
-Shared at country Senior Management Team level
then with staff to inform and or transform
- Shared with partners including donors in joint
review meeting or special report
- Documented for lesson learned that are used for
new intervention replication or scaling up
Note: Partners are implementing stakeholders (i.e., state and
non-state actors), while donors are funders.
Process put in place to ensure use of information
• There is a strong M&E system in place from
project level to headquarters to ensure the
use of the following information
Field visit reporting system
 Quarterly joint meetings to update on the progress
and challenges
Project reporting (financial and narrative ) systems,
Web-based program information (PPMIS)
Web-based financial systems (AGRESSO)
Web-based project success story systems
How results can be improved in the future
• More friendly information system for local
partner level to access is needed.
• Country specific information server is needed.
• More public reporting to inform and enable
their attitudinal change (to transform) is
fundamental.
• More sharing what Heifer is doing with other
organizations is critical for improvement.
The use of information
-Helps in planning new interventions, based on
experience and lesson learned
-Helps in designing interventions and
operationalizing the scaling up of interventions
-Helps to improve daily ways of doing things, and
NOT taking work as usual
-Leads to improved funding opportunities from
institutional donors
-Creates more trust and transparency of the
organization for outsiders (donors)
Challenges being encountered in doing assessment
-
Time consuming
Very costly
Qualified personnel needed all the time
Need appropriate technology for data base
(collation, analysis and storage)
Broader lessons learned from the experience
- Planning for impact monitoring during
implementation, and not waiting to do it at
the end of the intervention, is informative,
educative and helps to transform.
-Doing monitoring based on donor
requirements alone does not have benefits for
the organization and beneficiaries.
