W HAT'S NEX T @ NEXT STEPS Maintain our focus on scaling quality of impact rather than reach. Expand educational programmes from English into support for Science, Math and English. Expand our Propel and Discover programmes. Expand number of volunteers per child to improve quality of impact. Partner with other expert organizations where we either deploy their methodologies using our own scalable delivery network, or support them to deliver their pieces of the puzzle in tandem with ours. In 2014 we will pilot this to increase our impact from Dream Camps.

We range our planning in a way that ensures that our annual plan remains firmly in line with our long term aspirations. Over the next 3 years we will lay foundations for longer term systemic change with a focus on the following elements: Benchmark and baseline adult outcomes to help us prioritise interventions better and set meaningful targets for outcomes. Scale and standardize quality of impact in existing programmes, focused on personal development, education and progression. Expand our range of empowerment programmes to cover all critical intervention points, with a focus on Life Skills, Emotional Health, Transition Readiness and After-Care. Formalise and expand the work we do to drive change in the ecosystem around the children we work with, focusing on shelter support, public awareness and understanding policy. Ensure seamless integration between all our programs, and more agile and responsive delivery. Develop thought leadership in improving outcomes for children in shelters, and in mobilising and developing young leaders.

The Next 3 Years

Stabilise delivery and increase operational efficiency. Formalise and embed Agile planning and decision making. Redesign the organisational structure at the national level and transition to ?One Big MAD?. Focus on strengthening cultural identity across teams and across cities. Start improving transferability of methodologies, knowledge sharing and regional practices. Expand dedicated team for researching outcomes to include regional Fellows and develop scalable tools for managing and analysing data.
