The following findings are derived from information gathered through household surveys conducted May 18th to July 24th of 2015 in 555 households in 31 communities around the municipality of Camoapa . Representatives of the Mortenson Center in Engineering for Developing Communities at CU Boulder, collaborated with El Porvenir (EP) to develop an assessment program of the social, economic and health impacts of their work.
The data collected in this project will serve as baseline data for future surveys, to be repeated every five years. The impact will be measured by associating changes in social, economic, and/or health conditions of the communities with projects implemented by El Porvenir in those communities since the previous survey was conducted.
Water for Life Assessment (WFL) is a global initiative that derived from the Accountability Forum held in December 2011 in Lempira, Honduras, where independent evaluators and organizations who support water and sanitation projects met to conduct an organizational assessment for a local NGO based on 22 criteria, grouped into 8 categories. This same evaluation was applied to El Porvenir in 2014 and provided valuable feedback to us to improve our work and also validated many of our processes. Here is the summary which is also available on: http://www.wflrating.org
The following findings are derived from information gathered through household surveys conducted July to August 2013 in 36 communities in the municipality of El Sauce. The communities and households surveyed were randomly selected which resulted in the inclusion of households and communities that were not El Porvenir partners in the surveys. Magpi survey systems were used for the surveys and data collection. Volunteer students helped tremendously in the collection of all data and were indispensable to this project.
