Measuring Impact

As these entrepreneurs and others grow their companies and create more employment opportunities we will be tracking how the jobs they create help reduce poverty in their regions. 

Specifically we are tracking how these jobs have helped reduce:

  • food deprivation
  • water deprivation
  • deprivation of sanitation facilities
  • health deprivation
  • shelter deprivation
  • education deprivation
  • information deprivation (ie media)
  • family abandonment – regular presence of fathers in the family
  • child abandonment – children being cared for at home 
  • child labor – children under 15 not in exploitative work


And we are looking to track increases in:

  • gifts to family/community/nonprofits
  • community participation
  • taxes paid
