Help a Child uses two scorecards to measure the results and impact of our Child Centered Community Development (CCCD) program: The Child Status Index and the Community Empowerment Scorecard.
Child Status Index
The Child Status Index is a tool to measure (the increase of) child wellbeing in the CCCD communities. This scorecard consists of eleven dimensions, clustered in three categories:
- physical wellbeing: food security, nutrition, health care services, wellness;
- cognitive wellbeing: performance, education and work;
- social wellbeing: shelter, care, abuse and exploitation, emotional health, social behavior.
For each dimension, a score between 1 and 4 can be given. A score of 1 reflects a very bad situation, whilst 4 means the desired situation.
Community Empowerment Scorecard
Help a Child uses the Community Empowerment Scorecard to measure (the increase of) community empowerment within CCCD communities, scoring 8 dimensions on a four point scale: access to public services, enabling a safe environment ,knowledge, skils and practices, networks and partnerships, ownership, participation, resilience, and self-esteem.
Find below the manuals and templates to use these scorecards within the monitoring and evaluation framework of your CCCD project.
