Our Impacts and Successes
Results-based Monitoring and Evaluation
Why we carryout rigorous monitoring & evaluations to measure our impacts?
“We are keen on results-based monitoring and evaluation to measure our impacts because everything that we do, we seek to promote prosperity, reduce poverty, and enhance stability. We exist to generate positive impacts in the lives of local communities struck in extreme poverty in Liberia and the Mano River Basin region. It is therefore curtail that we measure the impacts that we have achieved in each of our projects and programs. This allows us to prioritize the highest impact programs and projects, and phase out low-impact programs and projects, thereby constantly enabling us to improve the impacts of our services.”

Program Quality & Learning
VOSIEDA uses results-based monitoring and evaluation or (RbM&E). But what does VOSIEDA referred to as RbM&E?
Results-based monitoring and evaluation (RbM&E) is a systematic approach used by VOSIEDA’s Program Quality and Learning Department to track results and performance, based on a transparent and reflective logical and result-framework approach. We also use RbM&E to measure our impacts through evaluations. Monitoring is an established practice of internal oversight within our organization use to continuously provide our Board of Directors and management early indications of progress, or lack thereof, in the achievement of results in both operational and financial activities. Our RbM&E serves the dual purpose of increasing effectiveness, organizational learning, and informed decision making, as well as ensuring accountability and transparency to all our stakeholders. In this manner, our supporters, partners, donors, and most importantly, our beneficiaries, can expect the most effective approaches in responding to the identified needs. Below are the progress we’ve made over the last five years.
We empower communities to protect the environment and nature resources that everyone depends on for livelihoods, fresh water and clean air.
We empower smallholder farmers to transform agriculture from lonely struggles for survival to business enterprises capable of increasing incomes and improving food security
Women's Empowerment and Gender Equality
We empower women, girls and youths to defeat poverty and achieve equality. We focus on women and girls because we believe we cannot overcome poverty until everyone has equal rights and opportunities.
We work for participatory and inclusive political processes and institutions; greater accountability to citizens and to the law; and recognition of universally recognized human rights.
We are delivering technical and advisory services to indigenous communities, civil society, private sector and governments to enhance their development results.
We run evidence-based media (radio, television and mobile) campaigns to change behaviors and improve lives in Liberia and the Mano River Union.
Working Toward the Future
Our mission is to promote prosperity, reduce extreme poverty and enhance stability in Liberia and West Africa’s Mano River Union Basin region comprising of Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone.
Partnering with communities on field projects
We work on the ground and with partners in Liberia, Guinea, and Sierra Leone. Our team works to achieve our inspiration that it is possible to overcome poverty in West Africa as we see all over the world. Their work is serving as an example for everyone, from businesses to governments, who must work to overcome poverty for the benefit of us all.
Ending poverty while caring for planet earth
We work with local communities in Liberia and West Africa’s Mano River Union Basin region to strengthen local economies, care for the planet, and build secure livelihoods that guarantee a living income to poor families.
Empowering the poor through innovation and technology
We undertake research to generate and share evidence-based information about development policies and resources management and their impacts. We focus on the ultra-poor, smallholders, indigenous peoples, local communities and small and medium-sized entrepreneurs. We seek innovation and technology to fight poverty.
