Joint action for global goals – Action Impact Network

Boxgirls is one of eight organizations which were joined by independent research experts and academic representatives for a three-day workshop in Cape Town.  The primary objective was to establish a set of pragmatic indicators and data collection tools to measure the collective impact of youth sport-for-development and peace interventions.  The meeting was funded by the Laureus Sport for Good Foundation, Comic Relief and the World Childhood Foundation.

Together with Waves for Change, Grassroot Soccer, Skatistan, Drive for Life, UNICEF, Africa Yoga Project and Waves Project we have formed the ‘Action Impact Network’ to establish a collective approach to measuring the impact of programmes delivering mental and wellbeing solutions to at-risk youth, through participation in sport and embodiment activities worldwide.

The Action Impact Network shares the belief that in creating a common approach to monitoring and evaluation, they will be able to provide structured evidence that reinforces ‘what works’ in the sector of sport for development and wellbeing.

We are proud to share our expertise and experiences with conducting an RCT evaluation of our project activities with our international partners.

And it was great to show them some boxing basics during their visit of Boxgirls South Africa in Khayelitsha.

You guys rocked it!
