ISAA acts in accordance with stringent NGO requirements according to AusAid standards to ensure that funding is reaching the intended beneficiaries, projects and programs they are engaged with in Uganda. ISAA are currently NOT AusAid accredited but are working towards it. Monitoring visits are an essential part of our programs and risk management procedure and as a result are undertaken regularly. ISAA members go abroad for monitoring visits on ground annually to evaluate the development of the projects and programs. We also have volunteers going abroad to assist with various projects that take place and provide progress reports and snapshots upon their return. The local administration team carry out monthly monitoring visitations and provide monthly or quarterly progress reports on programs and projects.
Giving to results, not the need! The fact that there is a need is not, by itself, the reason to send money. It is essential to know how an investment will change the situation. Programs that show measurable evidence of lives being changed, not just that effort is being made, are what we aim for. We pay close attention to how a project’s activities result in life change for the participants or beneficiaries. We make every effort to know who will benefit from possible funding of the project, how they will benefit and approximately how many recipients will be assisted.
We endeavour to partner with indigenous enterprise initiatives because they tend to be the most effective and sustainable.
Our programs and projects serve the whole community and individuals as a whole, providing a holistic approach, meeting the physical, emotional, intellectual and spiritual needs.
Lasting results that can be achieved with short-term financial assistance. In order to maintain independence and objectivity, it is important to move towards micro-development projects that will help to create a more self-reliant and self-sustaining living.
