Development programs promote complex reforms and change processes. Such processes are often characterized by insecurity and unpredictability, posing a big challenge to the evaluation of development projects. Development Diaries was strategically designed to pioneer objective analysis of social development trends; showcase change-makers and understand which projects work, why, under which conditions in Africa. On the other hand, it gives insights, share best practises and offers its viewers a unique approach to a wide spectrum of topics and social issues.

This is a one-stop resource on the African third sector. This online portal, spotlights on development activities; non-profit industry and government projects, interventions from corporate bodies and international development partners vis-à-vis the achieved impacts.
