Testimonials

Blue background fading into a photo of several Nepali people holding their hands up in the air smiling

For the first time in life, I began to find the keys to happiness for myself. I want to bring this training to communities all over my country, to help children, leaders, adults, parents, and each and every person to be a better person. I would be a different person if I had this training when I was a teenager.”​

Measuring Impact

Our mixed method approach currently includes a variety of measurement tools:
 

Five different colored boxes in bright colors with icons of people, clipboard, people sitting at a table, magnifying glass, speech bubble, and person at a barbershop getting haircut

DEMOGRAPHIC DATA

PRE, POST, AND FOLLOW-UP QUESTIONNAIRES

INTERVIEWS

CASE STUDIES

TESTIMONIALS

INFORMAL "BARBERSHOP" DATA

We are passionate about measuring the effectiveness of our work. Over the years, we've collected both quantitative and qualitative data which assess the impact of our programs on participants' lives, healing journeys, and work with survivors in their communities.

 

As a result of attending our programs, participants report that they have:​

  • Overcome addiction and depression

  • Started mental health organizations

  • Entered graduate programs in counseling

  • Trained parents and students to cope with traumatic stress in health ways

  • Supported perpetrators of harm to end cycles of abuse

  • Counseled peers and family members experiencing trauma

  • Improved relationships with their children and other family members

  • Released shame around their own trauma

  • ... and more

Our post-workshop and follow up data demonstrate both the depth and the ripple effect of our work, proving that when we unlock the power of survivors to heal themselves and others, profound transformation is possible.

We are enthusiastic about sharing our lessons learned from testing both standardized and customized measurement tools, in order to advocate for more ethical, justice-based, community-centered impact assessment.
