Quality FAQs

1. How do we measure our impact?

What we do includes:
● Sharing the project plans, updates and impact reports of the NGOs how lives are improved.
  • Measuring cost-effectiveness (costs/transferred Euros)
  • Monitoring donor and NGO satisfaction
  • Looking at changes we can make for NGOs to receive unconditional donations
  • Sharing expertise from the NGOs we support and experts on engaging communities in impact measurement.

We measure our impact to learn, improve and proof the way we work.

2. What are the selection criteria for NGOs?

NGOs are selected by our experts in the country based on the following criteria:
iMPACT direct supports NGOs that:
  • Contribute to one or more of these 3 Sustainable Development Goals: Poverty reduction/economic development (SDG1); Food security (SDG 2); and advanced education (SDG4).
  • Work from Ghana, Kenya, Liberia, Uganda, Sierra Leone and Tanzania.
NGOs are selected by our experts in the country, based on the following criteria.

Participating NGOs:

  • Are locally-led, and comply with local regulations (i.e. have an official NGO-registration and have a bank account meaning they were KYC-checked at their bank).
  • 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.
  • Engage their beneficiaries in the evaluation of projects.
  • Donations through iMPACT direct make a significant difference for your NGO’s budget. (We aim for target amounts of average €2,500 per campaign of 4 months.)
  • 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 – like iMPACT direct itself – by sharing project information, updates and reports on our website.
