Outcomes Measurement
 
It’s not just about hundreds of homes, in dozens of countries, rescuing thousands of children. We at Orphan Lifeline are focused on specific outcomes. We look at expected and actual outcomes for three targets – church, child and community – and according to two categories – physical and spiritual.

Outcome goals are individualized and enumerated for each project, but the following are example categories of outcomes that are measured.
