Your Impact on Communities
SOS's community-level impact was assessed through stakeholder interviews and focus group discussions. Outcomes were tracked in four areas:
- Community awareness
- Community-based support systems (civic engagement, community networks, child safeguarding)
- Progress toward sustainability
- Family-like alternative care
With the results in hand, impact was quantified to calculate a figure for social return on investment (SROI). Altogether, SOS Children’s Villages delivered an impressive social return of $14 for every $1 invested.
