BOND event addresses value for money


Aids Alliance

The Alliance presented its work on costing community mobilisation at a multi-agency learning event held by British NGOs for Development (BOND) last month.

At the end of May, BOND hosted a multi-agency learning event on value for money methodologies. 

It was a hugely successful event, with presentations from Action Aid, the World Wildlife Fund and Mango, as well as by the Alliance on its work around value for money.

Liza Tong, Research and Evaluation Manager at the Alliance spoke about how our approach to value for money has evolved within the Alliance over the past two years, and the focus of our work now.

Liza said, “It was a great opportunity to meet with colleagues who are all struggling with similar challenges to measure the value of their organisations work.  There was a good discussion on the issue of costing community mobilisation, and the importance of stressing to decision makers and donors that there needs to be greater consideration for fully understanding costs incurred by communities.”

The Alliance contributed significantly to BOND’s recent publication: Value for money: what it means for UK NGOs which you can download here, along with copies of all presentations from this event:
