We’re passionate about empowering you to grasp the real effects of your social interventions. Together, we can design a robust and useful evaluation process to help you learn from your past performance, directly tailored towards your accountability and reporting requirements.

The ILO - Sustaining Competitive and Responsible Enterprises (SCORE) programme continuously seeks MDF’s assistance to carry out meaningful evaluation research
MDF performed an End of Phase evaluation of SUSTAIN-Africa.
MDF reviewed the overall performance of this multi-stakeholder partnership in such a way that it led to understandable, acceptable and actionable lessons.
Between 2018 and 2022, MDF conducted three evaluations for the Hague Institute for Innovation of Law (HiiL).
The Kenya Youth Employment Opportunities Project (KYEOP) aims to improve the employability of Kenyan youths while also providing them with a way to earn money.
We recognise that most international development efforts pursue complex change. This type of change is often intangible, non-linear, and difficult to predict in pace and scale.
Measuring this therefore requires complex-aware methods like: Outcome Mapping / Outcome Harvesting, Most Significant Change, Collective Impact Approach and Timeline Analysis.
We need to understand the expected and unexpected changes, which can go beyond your own deliverables. What is the significance of your intervention? How plausibly can change be attributed to your efforts?
Together we pick from our toolkit of tested methodologies, which we tailor to your specific needs. This can include Contribution Analysis, Realist Evaluation, Process Tracing or Collaborative Outcome Reporting.
We mobilise additional quantitative expertise when appropriate.
For true learning, we go even further: we deliberately pursue the acceptance and internalisation of evaluation results through joint sense-making.
We stimulate our clients to analyse from different perspectives, to enrich our conclusions and ideas for strong future performance.
We then work with you to translate the evaluation findings into actionable measures that will empower you towards even greater social impact.
