Our Impact

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 2022, 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 2021, we recorded the following results:
