Impact and Programs
• In 2014 ChildFund reached 18.2 million people through holistic life stage and community-based programming
(ChildFund International works in 26 countries, through 429 local partners, reaching 6 million adults, to impact 12.1 million children)
• ChildFund has invested in monitoring and evaluation processes and in documenting impact.
o A recent Social Return on Investment (SROI) study in Ecuador found that for every $1 invested in our responsive parenting programs, it returns between $2 and $3.50 of benefit to children, families, and communities.
o ChildFund’s first Impact Report (https://www.childfund.org/Impact-report-2013/) was published in 2013 and shares learning from our work across 20 countries. Page 5 of the impact report shares a Tapestry of Evidence, which is a product of ChildFund's commitment to a culture of continuous learning. To create it, a large repository of information was consulted, including: board reports, annual reports, evaluations, tracer studies, learning briefs, assessments, household surveys, local partner surveys, datasets, and case studies; over the course of 11 years, and 20 countries in 5 continents.
