Programs

What are the organization's current programs, how do they measure success, and who do the programs serve?

Program 1

High School Scholarships

Education: We believe all children should have the opportunity to attend high school or trade school. Education gives children direction and keeps them from living on the streets and becoming hopeless. Expansion International provides scholarship for students to attend high school, leadership training for students in high school and invests in schools and training centers in the communities where we work.

Charting Impact

Self-reported by organization

Five powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

  1. What is the organization aiming to accomplish?
    Expansion International would like to reduce poverty by addressing health issues, offering education scholarships, and micro-finance programs with business training while helping each person to know the gift of Jesus Christ in the five communities where we are currently working.
  2. What are the organization's key strategies for making this happen?
    Our overall strategy is to work with communities to identify leaders then link partners, facilitate volunteers and provide leadership by guiding and connecting organization with suitable development projects. We believe to transform a poverty stricken community the focus must include a holistic approach to address multiple areas at the same time. The areas we are addressing include: health, economic, education and spiritual. We identify specific projects based on community needs then identify solutions through working with partners in their areas of expertise.
  3. What are the organization's capabilities for doing this?
    Expansion International, inc is located in Boise, ID and currently has 3 employees working in the Boise office they are responsible for setting strategies, identifying needs and locating resources. Expansion International Africa was established as an Kenyan NGO in 2010 and currently has 2 employees. They are responsible for identifying needs, implementing and managing on-going projects in Kenya.
    The BOD of both organizations are actively involved in the management of the various program, specifically the Scholarship program and the Missions program are both managed by the members of the Board.
  4. How will they know if they are making progress?
    Our main indicators are:
    Number of people impacted
    Number of partners
    Number of Scholarships given per year
    Number of volunteers involved
    Operational funds in reserve
    Number of donors, size of donations
    Types of Donors
  5. What have and haven't they accomplished so far?
    We have done very well at meeting the targets for number of people served each year and for the volunteers available to help
    We have not been active enough in signing up new partners and raising future funds for big projects, as well we are working on gaining a more diverse stream of income.
