Theory of Change

We will achieve reduced financial pressures for families in Junthawith children under the age of 15 by addressing the high fuel costs related to cooking through the solution of an alternate cheaper fuel. Parents will therefore be enabled to achieve reliable fuel prices that enable them to spend more time with their families and work less or increase their disposable income.

 

Evaluation Plan

What are the intended outcomes of the Project?

Positive Impacts 

  • Ultimately:provide a cheaper and more reliable fuel source to families
  • Financial Stability: Increased financial stability through stable fuel prices all year round
  • Increased disposable income: Achieved by providing lower fuel costs which in turn weekly expenses are reduced. 
  • Reduced work hours: Families do not have to work so many hours to make ends meet. 

Negative Impacts

  • Competitors: Alternate fuel solution competitors such as charcoal may loose market share, profit and in turn may shutdown 
  • Loggingconsumers are not buying as much this a drop in demand and sales. 
  • Distrust between PEV and purchaser:if the product does not meet what they are after/is unreliable/faulty.

What indicators will we use to tell if we’ve achieved the outcomes?

  • Families will have an increased disposable income
  • Parents will not have to work as hard to make ends meet
  • Customer surveys and feedback formes- enables improvements to be made on the solution 
  • Families are under less financial stress
  • More children enrolled at school

What tools can we use to measure the indicators?

  • Governmental reports regarding demographics and incomes
  • Survey families regarding to how much quality family time they get
  • Measure weekly working hours 
  • School enrolment levels/numbers

General:
- Simplify your theory of change, this should just be one sentence
- The purpose of this is to understand what positive impact you intend to have through your project and how you will measure it. So you only need to include positive impact and how you will measure this. You don't need to discuss negative impact.

Indicators:
You need to rework your indicators. Your indicators should be the key things that you can realistically look for to know whether or not you are achieving your theory of change. For example, for Solar key indicators could include: increased length in work hours and increased revenue. These are the key changes that you would look for in your consumers to make sure that you are achieving your theory of change. The tool section then explains how you will find those key changes. Consider the following:
- "Parents will not have to work as hard to make ends meet": How do you measure someone's ability to make ends meet? What are you going to look for to know whether they are working hard to make ends meet?
- "Customer Surveys and Feedback Forms": What questions are you asking in these? surveys alone are not indicators. They are tools.
- "Families are under less financial stress": what will you look for to know whether they are in less financial stress?
