Monitoring data from our projects in our areas of coverage is fundamental to ensure the work we conduct with our project staffs is having effective results. This data is reported in our Annual Results Reports to keep our strict commitment to evidence based analysis, transparency, accountability and integrity in all we do.

NSDO monitors and reports two main sources of data:


Women, men, girls, and boys who are directly or indirectly involved in activities implemented by NSDO and receiving support, services, goods, resources or directly engaged in actions toward good change through achievement of projects’ goals and objectives.


Long-lasting improvements in people’s lives resulting from changes in situations or program outcomes. This can include changes in people’s economic situation, access to health or other programmatic intervention / services, and/or a greater sense of human capital, improved capacity and ability for positive transformation.
