BIG Data for a Small NGO: Monitoring and Evaluating our Success

MAP International is celebrating 60 years of service to impoverished and at need people across the globe. While the mission and the heart of the organization has changed very little over the years – MAP International has evolved and is still evolving to remain a relevant player in humanitarian work.

One key area of evolving has been in the collection and sharing of data – the numbers and the stories. Who we are impacting, how are we doing it, where are the dollars going, what are the real changes in the lives of people… these questions must be answered for MAP and for you.  MAP, like many other NGOs, is working to constantly improve the way we collect data in the field through improving our internal and external monitoring and evaluation (M&E) process. This process is based on establishing expected impacts and outcomes with clear and measurable indicators of success and well planned activities that set us up to accomplish our goals within a given time frame.
