‘Futuremakers by Standard Chartered’ is a global initiative launched as part of Standard Charted Bank’s (SCB) Global Community Programmes strategy. The programme tackles the issue of inequality and seeks to promote greater economic inclusion. It focuses on supporting disadvantaged young people from low-income households, particularly girls and people with visual impairments. It takes a holistic approach to promoting greater economic inclusion by supporting beneficiaries at different stages in their lives, from the basic life skills they learn at school, to the skills they need to apply for their first job or set up a business.
We have supported the development of a monitoring and evaluation framework for the programme and the tools and systems required for its implementation. This included preparation of written guidelines; organisation of workshops to strengthen monitoring and evaluation capacities; and design and roll-out of a basic management information system.
