Our programmes primarily address the needs of residents for and with whom they are designed. Additionally, they positively affect the lives of the family members, caregivers and teachers of our primary beneficiaries, while simultaneously creating wider social value in our areas.
As of 2024, the Time + Tide Foundation engages over 8,000 residents as part of our regular programme activities, and we have an indirect impact to 19,000 people across the 300 villages in which we work.
Data and Decision Making
We focus on the data that matters, and we track the progress of our projects using an internally developed monitoring and evaluation framework, through which we capture a variety of baseline data for the beneficiaries of our programmes and set strategic targets. Data is collected using an open source suite of tools called ODK and thereafter piped into our bespoke dashboard, through which we can filter and analyse the data as desired.
We consistently track outcomes that indicate the progress towards our strategic targets. By the end of 2022, we recorded the following results:
- Over 2022, 80% of community members surveyed and 75% of parents cited at least one biological cause of disabilities in comparison to 2018 when 63% of community members and only 25% of parents were able to cite biological causes of disabilities.
- Families of programme graduates collectively reported a 54% increase in their income at the end of 2022, crediting the independence of their children (and, as a result, an increase in their ability to generate income)
- In 2023, 71% of the school-going age children are enrolled into formal schools
- 88% retention rate for the 2021 and 2022 cohorts collectively
- On average, the girls’ self-esteem improved to 70% for the 2021 and 2022 cohorts from 63% at baseline
- 75% retention rate for the students in the 2020, 2021 and 2022 cohorts collectively
