  • We believe that donors who “see results” through our evaluation tools can make better funding decisions and engage in a conversation that improves project implementation.

  • 12. Our development philosophy. We believe… 1. People (NGOs) want to do the right thing 2. you don't have to be an expert 3. the “right thing” isn’t always clear, so be open-minded 4. people must be part of a conversation to learn 5. committed people will eventually get it right, by listening to others 6. we shouldn’t penalize people for failing to get it right from the get-go
  • 13. State of the evaluation data highway Google – 150M daily users Wikipedia – 10M daily visitors Facebook – 200M daily users, 70% outside USA -- not connected to -- World Bank + IMF = 10,000 people NGOs = 4 million worldwide (40 million people?)

  • 20.
    • Global Open Challenge:
    • trains NGOs how to use social media for fundraising
    • connects with NGOs that have a group of individual supporters
    • Must raise $4,000 from 50 donors in 1 month
    • Builds support base and reputation system
    • NGOs can retrain and try again 3 months later
    • We’ve filtered >2000 NGOs since 2008.
  • 21. Heuristic due diligence
    • Connect grants, recommenders to larger trust network
    i.e. how DailyShow and SecondCity are related
  • 22. Heuristic due diligence
    • Examine NGO footprint on Internet
    • Save histories… share them.
  • 23. Aggregate this information for public
  • 24. Open Data changes the conversation
    • When stories and feedback appear in a public space in real-time , people are more willing to participate.
    • Community apathy is the enemy of evaluations.
    • NGOs get more than they give.
  • 25. Stories feed the Map Kibera Project
    • Informal schools
    • HIV/AIDS services
    • Safe / unsafe zones

  • 36. “
 Can you share a story about one past community effort you witnessed or know about? Think of a “community effort” as any organized activity led by a person or NGO to improve the lives of a community. Talk about one moment or experience that was part of this community effort. Explain what happened. Please transcribe this story here, then answer some questions to help others learn from your experience.” http://www.globalgiving.org/storytellers/
  • 37. If story is about a GG partner NGO, we tag it. http://www.globalgiving.org/storytellers/
  • 38. Sample story Catholic Church Group visits sick in the hospital On Saturday at our church we go to visit the sick in the hospital. Then I saw this boy who was burn almost on his whole backside. He was crying and this made me feel very bad. I had to make him stop crying by telling him stories and sooner the boy slept in my arms. I was at ease when he slept. http://www.globalgiving.org/storytellers/
  • 39. Sample story http://www.globalgiving.org/storytellers/ Picking trash for cash Okay. So you have these kids who clean up the streets, picking trash. But those in Kibera, they often do it in the neighborhoods where people have more money…. One day they gathered all the trash in a neighboring slum and collected some money. But at the end of the day they returned home to Kibera and there was still trash everywhere. I wished for once they would clean up our own streets.

  • 42. http://www.globalgiving.org/storytellers/ What can 3000 stories accomplish? Past study – why do some people become terrorists? Young people in pakistan collected stories about justice from community. “ Triad” question used to map how each story defined justice.
  • 43. http://www.globalgiving.org/storytellers/ Get your own back, revenge Restorative, reconciling Deterence, stop Others from doing same Get your own back, revenge Restorative, reconciling Deterence, stop Others from doing same Pakistanis in Peshawar map differently from ex-patriot pakistanis in London Pakistan London-Pakistanis
  • 44. http://www.globalgiving.org/storytellers/ Why? Record what Kenyans care about. Share with all NGOs a tool they can use to align their mission with community priorities Identify organizations that communities support, so we can invite them to GG. Measure our impact to date. If current GG partners (as a whole) match the same needs that Kenyans talk about, the “marketplace” is working.
  • 45. Past: Monitoring and evaluation - Find faults, prove impact, attribute credit Present: Assess and enhance - Outsiders guiding the process Future: Listening and serving - Community is the filter, the expert, and the arbiter for new directions
