We evaluate from a place of mutual accountability.

As a funder, our results are also the results of our grantee partners. In all our activities, but especially in our evaluation activities, we look to create benchmarks horizontally. This means co-creating goals with our grantee partners and evaluating from a place of mutual accountability.
