Krochet Kids is an innovative non-profit that empowers women in Peru and Uganda to rise above poverty by creating and selling handmade apparel and crocheted hats. The organization has several donors who help support a portion of the operations and want to know exactly how the women are being empowered and impacted. With an algorithm that aggregates nearly 50 metrics, each woman in the program is given a monthly “empowerment score,” which considers both quantitative measures and qualitative factors to define health.
This kind of data exposure and diagnostic display will be increasingly critical to the health of non-profits in the future. Donors will not only feel a connection to the women who they are partnering with, they’ll be more confident that their funds are being directed towards life changing work. The impact is huge. Donors and volunteers will have far greater desire and comfort in contributing in large capacity.
