My Social Prism — The new way to do Social Project`s.
My Social Prism is a new methodology for understanding social projects. Through 10 simple steps, will give you a “big picture” of your project in just one figure. Clearly shows the connections between different elements of your venture; helping to reduce errors and gain a more comprehensive understanding of your project.
I believe PRISM can work well as a tool to engage in a focused discussion with your team.

My social prism is built under a unique and novel concept that addresses the social problem from a more complete scope, making social projects of all kinds to develop successful solutions in the long term, through real and feasible measures. The methodology considers 10 essential steps that are interconnected and as they are analyzed, they form a prism.
The edges to be evaluated take into account the beneficiaries and then carefully analyze the context, the problem and the roles of the actors involved. By the way, it considers vital the development of measures of impact, sustainability, geographical scope and communication, the latter as a key element in the dissemination of this entire process.
“This new model not only seeks to improve and order the ideas of entrepreneurs and social organizations, but also reduces basic errors when it comes to tackling social problems, proposing an effective and real solution,” says Ignacio Gago, creator of DAMGO.
Who stresses that this model is feasible for any project, foundation or institution that is addressing a specific social problem.
A month after its launch has been used by more than 500 users in different countries of the world. The format is open and free to use so you can download it through the website www.mysocialprism.com.
The methodology is explained in a simple way and is therefore ideal for all types of public: school, university, teachers, social workers and social organizations such as foundations, associations or CSR departments. It is currently used by UDD academics, researchers from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT) and NGOs such as Fundación Chile.
