MILE (Measuring Impact for Learning & Empowerment) is a people-centric and action oriented participation and feedback methodology in Voluntary Service Overseas (VSO). It blends the technical rigor of programming paired with active beneficiaries’ participation and feedback. It promotes ownership through co-creating, joint monitoring, mutual learning, and mutual influencing of program design, implementation and learning. It recognizes that VSO project beneficiaries, particularly the most marginalized, excluded, and vulnerable, have a central stake in the program and monitoring and evaluation cycle of every individual project/program that is meant to positively and sustainably change their lives.
MILE enables project beneficiaries, particularly the poorest, the excluded, most marginalized, and vulnerable, to be at the center of planning and execution of monitoring, evaluation & learning in VSO projects, making it participatory, accountable, and empowering for the beneficiaries involved. It aims to apply methodologies that are tailored and relevant to different categories of beneficiaries e.g. early grade learners, older pupils, youth & adolescents, children/people with disability, refugee people and so on.
