Measure Your

Improve Food

Better Serve Your Community

Equip your farmers and processors with the education and resources they need to thrive.

Empower people to become sustainably self-sufficient and in control of their nutrition.

Comprehend the data collected from your program and share it with your stakeholders.


Agriculture development and food security programs do not need to be so hard. So why are they?

Your organization is dedicated to serving communities to become more resilient and sustainably healthy. Yet, droughts, pests, conflicts, and a lack of infrastructure inhibit the production and transport of food. Limited extension services and educational opportunities prevent many chances for improvement.

We believe your hard work and efforts should have a sustainable impact. IDEA’s team of experienced agriculturalists and development workers are here to equip your organization with the knowledge and frameworks that will best enable you to serve your communities.

Three of the tools IDEA uses to help International Non-Governmental Organizations measure their impact on agriculture:

We understand the challenges of accomplishing your food security goals

At IDEA, we understand your desire to improve your programs and increase the food security of your communities. To begin, you must assess your community’s needs that limit agricultural productivity, identify their farming assets for development, and offer potential solutions for growth while including the community throughout the process.


The challenge is knowing what projects will result in the impact you and your community desires, which can leave you feeling helpless.

We believe every organization has the potential to improve the food security of their communities.

Custom Program Reporting

IDEA understands the value of your investment. Your organization is committed to responsibly funding programming in your communities while also communicating with your family of donors. IDEA’s DevCoaching provides Monthly, Quarterly, and Annual reports on the progress of your programming.  This Monitoring & Evaluation data not only reflects the impact of our partnership but effectively tells the story of the outcomes you are achieving for you to use in fundraising.  By contracting with IDEA you will receive an exponential return on your investment.
