How We Know It Works

Success that’s trackable and repeatable.

We invite you to see for yourself – 922 partners have traveled since 2011.

Monitoring, tracking and reporting on the success of each empowerment group is a top priority for ZOE. As a baseline, we utilize metrics such as businesses started and re-enrollment in school as a way to measure success. Beyond those figures, we zero-in on sample sizes in each country to collect the data necessary to thoroughly evaluate impact within the eight areas of ZOE’s intervention. This level of reporting and analysis continues for the duration of each empowerment group and continues, but at a lesser degree, following program graduation. ZOE also actively solicits outside studies on the empowerment program.

Contact us if you are interested in learning more about our impact data and results.



Empowerment doesn’t start and stop with one group, it’s a movement that continues to transpire—and we are committed to proving it.

On the streets, the real-time effect of ZOE’s program can be witnessed. Children who once felt displaced and stigmatized in their own community are now emboldened entrepreneurs, providers and leaders who know their worth and their abilities. They become a living testimony as their entire community gets behind their transformation and shares the pride felt from each child’s success. Their businesses are perpetuating growth in their community, and as a result, an entire economic system is reaping the benefits.
