“Before engaging Lida Africa to develop our monitoring and evaluation system, Brass for Africa only had anecdotal evidence of our impact providing music and life-skills training to children and young people. As we grew, funders began to ask for more evidence of our impact, and we realized we needed guidance in determining what we would measure and how. Lida Africa were wonderful: they sat with our team to create a more robust Theory of Change, guided us through exercises so we could determine which KPIs to focus on, developed surveys to create baselines with new participants and created other tools to track the impact of our work. They were timely, professional and receptive to our needs. Today, we are able to share our impact with confidence and have a clearer organizational direction. Thank you, Lida Africa!”
