How to Use Theories of Change to Improve Your Funding Applications and Project Articulation

Ever wondered why articulating your project is essential? It's the gateway to funding, partnerships, and impact measurement. A Theory of Change serves as the guiding light, offering a clear and visual summary that resonates with potential stakeholders.

 

Why Learn about Theories of Change?

A Theory of Change brings clarity to project design, implementation, and evaluation, serving as a valuable framework for collaboration, decision-making, and project management. Global funders, such as the European Union, Global Affairs Canada, USAID, and Gates Foundation, rely on Theories of Change for decision-making. Learn how Theories of Change guide projects by answering crucial questions about purpose, impact, preconditions, assumptions, and risk strategies.

 

Who Is this Workshop For?

This workshop is ideal for individuals involved in project design, implementation, and evaluation across various sectors. It caters to leaders, NGOs, entrepreneurs, and anyone seeking to enhance their understanding of Theories of Change for effective collaboration, and decision-making. Whether you're new to the concept or looking to refine your skills, this workshop provides valuable insights. 

 

What's Unique about this Workshop?

TOC involves abstract concepts, making it challenging for beginners to grasp the intricate relationships among elements. The field uses varied terminology, causing confusion and making it difficult for learners to navigate and apply TOC principles. This workshop offers a solution. You will dive in and build a Theory of Change using a guided exercise that breaks down complex concepts and gives you an intuitive understanding of ToCs. Discover the simplicity behind our most popular exercise, the 'soup exercise,' and read testimonials to see how participants, inspired by Dr. Roxana Salehi's approach, have gained valuable insights.
