Why Non-Profit Measures Success Using Both Statistics and Stories - Michael Olsen

In Chapter 9 of 16, social entrepreneur and technology consultant Michael Olsen finds encouragement and possibility in measuring success using statistics and stories. Statistically, Olsen connects his non-profit Kilifi Kids (www.kilifikids.org) initiatives to results. Specifically, Olsen finds the group's 30,000 child de-worming initiative over time will add 6,000 years of school to Kenya's Kilifi District. Personal stories also help assess project success. Olsen uses handwritten letters to stay involved with secondary school scholarship recipients and learn how the investment is helping children advance in school.
