4th Wheel Approach
In order to assess the impact, 4th Wheel conducted a baseline survey of a sample of the housing-colony population in order to ascertain the health and education benchmark before the initiation of the project. Data was drawn on health profiles, availability of healthcare facilities and the extent of healthcare knowledge and awareness. Similarly, an education profiling was also conducted to assess the educational facilities available for children. To ensure effective execution and implementation of the initiative, 4th wheel has developed a monitoring and evaluation tracking scale through which the local field support collects data on impact indicators. Regular interviews are also conducted with the members of the housing unit to factor in their opinion and issues.
