Since 2007 Avina has used a results-oriented evaluation system to measure the impact of its work.
We consider results to be verifiable changes that contribute to sustainable development and stem from processes in which our allies are involved, with support from Avina through services, direct involvement, or financing.
Along with our allies, in 2015 we contributed to 87 concrete changes in Latin America. At least 18 of these changes each impacted at least one million people (Level 1 Results), exceeding our target for this level.
Avina’s strategy for 2013-2017 focuses on achieving broad-scale impact to transform the lives of millions of Latin Americans. Due to this focus, Avina's teams strive to achieve Level 1 Results because they reflect changes on the broadest scale. The target set for 2014 was exceeded by 29%.
We did not meet our target for Level 2 Results, but we exceeded our target for Level 3 results. Overall, we exceeded the target for the total number of results expected for 2014. Given that the organization is in the second year of its five-year strategic plan, these indicators demonstrate that we are on the path to truly impacting Latin American society.
We are also pleased to say we exceeded the target for Process Results by a wide margin.
Since we began using this system for measuring impact in 2007, Avina has contributed to 108 Level 1 Results.
In 2014, 100% of Level 1 Results led to changes in public policies, either through new policies or new approaches incorporated into existing policies. At the same time, these results have indirectly impacted the quality of life of people, the balance of power, the market ecosystem, networks to disseminate and promote successful practices, and solutions made possible by new technologies.
