Great insights, lots of practical tips. I believe Lean Start Up has huge potential to boost social impact and am striving to apply it in my organisation. One of the challenges we face though is donor funding cycles. Adopting an ‘experimental’ rather than planned approach means risking loss of 3–5 year funding commitments. How to convince donors?
First paragraph caught my attention so I was slightly disappointed that the story ends with no mention of whether Beauty’s experience is reflective of other girls that went through the CAMFED programme. It’s probably not relevant to the point being made here, but nonetheless would have been nice to acknowledge. Nice read though and bravo DFID Research for bringing your knowledge to Medium!
