How we listen

done We demonstrated a willingness to learn more by reviewing resources about feedback practice.
done We shared information about our current feedback practices.
  • Who are the people you serve with your mission?

    Orphans and Widows in Egbe, Nigeria and recipients of our grants and donations.

  • How is your organization collecting feedback from the people you serve?

    Paper surveys, Focus groups or interviews (by phone or in person), Case management notes, Community meetings/Town halls, Constituent (client or resident, etc.) advisory committees, Suggestion box/email,

  • What significant change resulted from feedback?

    We recently received information from one on one interviews that we conducted with our caregivers and children. We came to the conclusion that we had three programs missing from our school that most other schools in the community conducted. It was a Spelling Bee, Cultural Day and Debate. We put together a committee and they did some research to find out more information on these programs at the other schools in the community. Once the information was collected the committee put together a detailed description and budget for these programs. We approved them and commenced the programs over a period of two months. It was a huge success and all the caregivers and children were so excited.

  • With whom is the organization sharing feedback?

    The people we serve, Our staff, Our board,

  • How has asking for feedback from the people you serve changed your relationship?

    Asking for feedback from the people we serve has helped everyone feel heard. They feel like they have a voice and come to us with ideas and suggestions. They continue to open up and let us know when things can be improved. We also feel like it has allowed them to trust us more and not question new policies and procedures when they arise.

  • Which of the following feedback practices does your organization routinely carry out?

    We collect feedback from the people we serve at least annually, We take steps to get feedback from marginalized or under-represented people, We aim to collect feedback from as many people we serve as possible, We take steps to ensure people feel comfortable being honest with us, We look for patterns in feedback based on demographics (e.g., race, age, gender, etc.), We look for patterns in feedback based on people’s interactions with us (e.g., site, frequency of service, etc.), We engage the people who provide feedback in looking for ways we can improve in response, We act on the feedback we receive, We tell the people who gave us feedback how we acted on their feedback, We ask the people who gave us feedback how well they think we responded,

  • What challenges does the organization face when collecting feedback?

    We don’t have the right technology to collect and aggregate feedback efficiently, It is difficult to get honest feedback from the people we serve, We are challenged with language barriers and cultural barriers in obtaining feedback. ,
