metrics are in!

Global Roots creates school lunch programs for childen who live at the edge of the world.

Nothing works better in the nonprofit world than metrics. Donors want to see what their donations are paying for!

But here is the rub: how can any sensible charity launch any given project when failure is probable and success is only a question mark?

This was the scenario when Global Roots launched its first Children's Garden in Mtito Andei eight years ago.

Thanks to a few awesome donors (including Global Giving) we could take the time to find the right local partners and launch the right project.

Now, seven years later we finally have solid quantifiable results to show.

Key stats: absenteeism declined by 22% and average test score rose 30%

Or contace me!
