Impact assessment focuses on measuring the outcomes of a social development program, unlike program evaluation which includes process assessments as well. Edulever has been undertaking impact assessments for various educational and livelihood projects, and has gained significant expertise in doing these.
Partner NGO Identification & Due Diligence

With this experience, and through a vast network of other NGOs, we are in a position to identify the right NGO for a corporate partner to execute its CSR plans. In addition, Edulever also helps in conducting an objective due diligence of an NGO so that a company can choose its social investment partner with confidence.
Program Monitoring & Evaluation
The Edulever team has developed comprehensive and objective tools for monitoring of social development programs. These have been successfully deployed in large scale programs, such as the Migration Support program of Sir Dorabji Tata Trust. As part of M&E for CSR, Edulever can undertake the evaluation of an on-going project and recommend ways to make improvements to the program.

Such support would start from identifying an appropriate NGO partner to implement the program, and then providing requisite support to the NGO during the implementation. Through such support, the impact of the program on the ground can be multiplied manifold.
