Quality FAQs

How do we measure our impact?

We support NGOs (where relevant) to measure their impact, including:

  • Number of lives improved
  • Community impact through observed changes

In addition, we measure the effect that our strategies have for the NGOs we work with, including:

  • NGOs have more equal partnerships with northern-based organisations
  • NGOs have improved access to (unrestricted) funding, also beyond iMPACT direct
  • NGO’s have stronger organisations (measured with a self-assessment on organisational excellence, and cost-efficiency)

And finally, additional quantitative measures for monitoring progress include:

  • € donated
  • Cost-efficiency of iMPACT direct
  • NGO satisfaction
  • Donor satisfaction
What are the selection criteria for NGOs?
  • NGOs that are officially registered (and thus comply with local regulations).
  • NGOs that have a bank account in the country they work (and thus had a KYC-check).
  • NGOs that can show past annual financial reports.
  • African NGOs that are locally-led, locally-found and locally-based, especially those from Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Sierra Leone, Tanzania or Uganda.
  • NGOs that work for and with community members living below the poverty line.
  • NGOs that have activities running on one or more of these 3 Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs):
    • No Poverty (SDG1)
    • Zero Hunger (in combination with climate-smart solutions) (SDG 2)
    • Quality Education (SDG4)
  • NGOs with an annual income less than €100,000 (thus donations through iMPACT direct make a significant difference for the NGO’s budget).
  • NGOs whose initiators started from a great idea for local projects, with own or local resources and can show achieved impact but fail to get (sufficient) resources from granting donors.
  • NGOs that are (or are willing to):
      • Engage project participants in the planning, implementation and evaluation of projects.
      • Show how their project improves lives (facilitated by our application survey, project form and reporting format).
      • Are cost-efficient (i.e. budget/lives improved).
      • Are transparent by sharing project information, stories and reports on our website and socials.
  • NGOs that value partnerships based on equality, trust and transparency, in which we work as a team towards shared objectives and vision, with shared efforts.
