Goals & Strategy

Charting impact

Four powerful questions that require reflection about what really matters - results.

Across the world, poor health and lack of education deprive people of productive employment. Depleting resources and the effects of climate change, corruption, conflict and bad governance waste public resources and discourage private investment. Children of the Caribbean Foundation works strives to work diligently with others to achieve the next steps in the fight against poverty at all these various levels in an effort to save our world's children.

Children of the Caribbean Foundation works to achieve our goals through continually examining ourselves to ensure that we are practicing the most efficient methods of creative philanthropy. We do this by:
- Demonstrating a strong commitment to our mission;
- Demonstrating a culture of self criticism;
- Engaging in regular reviews;
- Constantly searching for ways of doing even better;
- Always being mindful of changing environments;
- Being aware of paucity of resources and limitations of roles;
- Being aware of the worth of knowledge and reputation as well as money;
- Having a sophisticated and flexible theory of change;
- Recognizing the power of rich networks;
- Seeing planning as a work in progress;
- Valuing the power of 'show and tell';
- Moving from demonstration to implementation;
- Moving beyond evaluation to risky learning.
And then, when we do our work, we do so in ways that avoid stigmatizing those who benefit.

To gain maximum leverage with modest financial resources, Children of the Caribbean Foundation is flexible in its approach. We forge alliances with other stakeholders and we are not shy in directly addressing government.
The Foundation maintains a serious and sophisticated approach to evaluation, using a variety of quantitative and qualitative methods. And we publish the results openly. In this regard, Children of the Caribbean Foundation works hard to ensure that the greatest possible percentage of each donation it receives goes directly to the children that it supports.
Once we commit to an area of need, we define our major goals and identify a clear path to achieving them.
