CPC evaluates its work to better understand what we do and to better understand what changes we are helping make in people, the groups they work in, and their communities.
We do our evaluation work by going to the people we work with - our grassroots partners - and having conversations with them about our work. This kind of evaluation, called qualitative evaluation, helps us figure out how to make our work stronger, building on what people say is particularly helpful, and by working harder in the areas where our grassroots partners suggest improvement.
We make these publications available as our contribution to the emerging body of literature documenting the importance of grassroots support in social change efforts.
