Define and track the intended impact upfront. Built in baseline, on-going and final evaluation to assess impact. Well designed research questions will be designed and implemented in partnership with academic or research organizations with expertise in these areas.
Build communication plans to review and share findings. Purpose is to raise awareness, share lessons learned, influence change, and inform policies. This could be accomplished via published articles, presentations at conferences, webinars, or TED talks.
The financial and impact sustainability of the programs will be considered and prototyped throughout the program. This is critical for Almata and for our partners to ensure that the benefits delivered will be sustained beyond the initial funding or Almata's direct involvement.
The impact should be scalable to a wide population. The use of innovative technology provides the basis for scalable impact.
