WHAT WE DO
As a research and advisory firm, 4th Wheel provides valid and sophisticated information on social welfare programs in order to make data-driven decisions. Strategic advisory services result in monitoring and quality control systems to manage social projects; institutionalising performance reporting and achieving tangible results. Practical, culturally relevant and ongoing social impact assessment strategies are designed for organisations, that involve all program stakeholders and not just evaluation experts. Impact evaluation is incorporated into program design by developing contextual Theory of Change (ToC) frameworks and building impact focused solutions.
Corresponding to ToCs, indicator grids are designed, which facilitates Results-based Management. Communication for Development(Com4Dev) assignments attach significant importance to meaningful participation of stakeholders in developing unique social stories. We help transform reports into visually engaging content, to share stories, garner support and improve the likelihood of engagement and comprehension, in turn building positive social perceptions of organisations. Capacity building programs aid teams in implementing social projects, conceptualizing program design, developing outreach and communication plans, forming strong partnerships, and assessing organisational impact.
