IMPACT OVERVIEW

Through our investments in centers of data use, inclusive engagement, policies and partnership, DCLI strives for both short term results and longer term self-sustaining impact that lives on and grows after our funding ends.

DCLI has achieved many milestones.

Beyond the numbers are the signs of more permanent change…

NEW Centers of Data Use:

The startup SEJEN & the Tanzania dLab were established—and are now co-funded—in part to help support PEPFAR implementation partners and fuel data-driven solutions.

Pipeline of local data talent:

The dLab helped establish the first Masters of Data Science in East Africa (with a PEPFAR scholars program), and SEJEN created a Data Science track at ENSEA***, a premier statistics training institution.

ENABLING ENVIRONMENT:

The dLab’s support to the National Bureau of Statistics led to a National Data Roadmap. In Côte d’Ivoire, DCLI partners are working with ministries on an action plan for government open data use.

Women’s empowerment:

DCLI projects worked hard—and succeeded—in raising women’s participation from <20% to ~50%, leveraging them to address local constraints to economic empowerment and epidemic control.

We believe in measuring and tracking impact – and involving third-party stakeholders to evaluate and help us learn from our work.

USAID’s SPACES MERL (Strategic Program for Analyzing Complexity and Evaluation Systems Investing) is helping us do this for the Tanzanian component of our work.

IREX has prepared a social network analysis (SNA) that provides insight on the stakeholders benefiting from our work.

We are proud to learn that our ‘systems’ approach is having at least some of the long-term effect we had hoped for – and is contributing to a greater interest in and capacity to use data in Tanzania.
