Faced with the reality that sustainable social change at scale is never achieved by a single organisation working alone, viaEd has developed experience in designing and facilitating collaboration between foundations and organisations in the sector
Faced with the challenge of making MEL interactive and relevant to all stakeholders (including grantee partners and foundation boards), viaEd has developed a platform that links a theory of change, its outcomes, learning and indicators into integrated story telling dashboards.
Faced with the challenge of driving social change in complex environments, viaEd has developed a visual approach to stakeholder mapping that recognises the unique challenges of creating sustainable impact in complex eco-systems.
What we do
At viaEd, we're focused on the needs of grant giving foundations working in child development and education.
Education and child development are exceptional ways of enhancing life outcomes and strengthening society.
Our clients usually work internationally and often have a focus on marginalised children and their families. Our team is small and nimble, but we frequently
work with other experts in the sector to tackle larger projects. To limit any conflict of interest we do not accept assignments
from NGOs that primarily operate by fundraising from foundations.
We enable grant giving foundations to increase their impact in four main ways:
Strategy and research
Create and sharpen impactful portfolio and programme strategies. Conduct research and analyse data to crack tough challenges.
Create opportunities that allow foundations to achieve greater impact together, than could possibly be achieved alone.
Monitoring, evaluation and learning
Discover what is happening, what's being achieved, and what's being learned - in ways that drive constant programme refinement.
Partner learning and support
Support grantee partners to learn and build their potential for greater impact, both individually and collaboratively within a programme.
