SoCha (a portmanteau of Social and Change) is an independent Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (ME&L) firm that provides bespoke solutions to social challenges. Since their inception in 2010, they have grown from a consortium of globally-recognized experts who specialize in evaluating the effectiveness of development assistance, to a full-fledged ME&L services firm that specializes in advancing innovative methodologies and changing the way donors find solutions to social problems. The main sectors of expertise are education, youth and training, maternal health, rural development, local governance and stabilization. We are registered in the US, but to be more responsive to their clients and more in touch with the realities on the ground, they operate two regional offices (in Tanzania and Thailand).
SoCha holds that Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning (ME&L) is the core strategic driver of any international development organization. Spanning from strategic planning to implementation with impact to institutional learning, ME&L provides the mechanisms for catalytic innovations and program management. If used correctly, ME&L will bring tremendous value to those who need it most. SoCha is deeply committed to measuring the results of development assistance and philanthropic work through ME&L that meets the highest requirements for rigor and transparency, drives continuous learning and improvement of programs, and demonstrates impact.
