Learning and Assessment
Learning and assessment (L&A) are at the heart of our support for human rights activism. Our global L&A team ensures that the Fund’s core values—respect, integrity, agility, sustainability, and inclusivity—inform and guide our decisions as we work to meet the needs of the Fund staff and grantees. Key aspects of our approach to learning and assessment include:
- Diverse practices
We draw on a range of L&A practices—including surveys, peer learning groups, and more—to design, adapt, and assess the impact of our programmatic work.
- Decentralized structure
To respect the experience of frontline activists, we work with Fund grantees to identify outcomes and indicators relevant to their contexts.
- Grantmaker strategies
In some instances, program strategies include funding and strategic support for grantee-led learning agendas or research to generate activist-informed knowledge.
- Sharing knowledge
We create space for Fund grantees to share experiences with each other. We also strive to share our learning with peers in the human rights movement.
