Knowledge Management and Learning

Using quantitative and qualitative data for strategic assessment and planning of programmes

CARE India, with its Knowledge Management and Learning (KML) unit, works to generate accountable data for the sustainable and scalable functioning of its various initiatives across India. Through an evidence-based programme management, we are able to provide accountable data and pace of direction to the different programmes being run in the areas of agriculture, financial inclusion, education and health in addition to incidental projects on WASH, gender, value chain interventions and more.

Our objective is to make the system more data-hungry and efficient. This helps improve the data usage qualitatively as well as quantitatively – concluding into data-driven decision making. The continued outcome measurement entails output and outcome data which is sample-based and continued for quick turn-around. The data is collected and analysed by an independent team of experts and field staff.
