A. Interactive and Participatory Workshop on "Theory of Change"
# Level 1 (Basic Level) : A half-a-day (3-3.5hrs) session that helps organizational staff to understand, in a simplified manner, the concept of "Theory of change" (TOC); and enables them to clearly identify and develop a TOC pathway for their organization.
# Level 2 (Advanced): A one day session (5-6hrs) that enables organizational staff to put theory into practice; and evaluate their (ongoing) work to gauge whether it is following the TOC pathway it had identified for itself under Level 1.
NGOs and Other Development Organizations can opt for both or either of the sessions; though Level 1 is highly advisable. Both the levels facilitate interactive conversations; individual/group/team exercises and active participation from participants.
B. Dialoguing with Adolescent Girls

PRADAN has been wanting to strengthen its internal learning and knowledge management system. In this regard, we got associated with Di4C, which helped us to meticulously run through the process of creatively conceptualizing and laying out a learning and knowledge system that would be IT enabled. Our online learning portal so developed will be launched soon. For the PRADAN team that was involved with Malika in particular, it was a great learning experience. She did a step by step hand-holding for us to understand the process of building an organizational (online) learning system. It made us appreciate the usefulness of doing knowledge management, also so that both our institutional history and previous work do not need to be reinvented! We are looking forward to the launch of our online portal, and hope to remain associated with Di4C for their guidance and support.

Alpine Concern has always advocated strongly on quality education and to provide a clear direction to students for their future career growth. Organizing the Teachers' Conclave in Dimapur/Nagaland was basically to address the contemporary challenges pertinent in teachers for professional development for quality teaching. Our sincere appreciation to Di4C team headed by Dr. Malika Basu for conducting the "Teachers Professional Development" (TPD) session effectively, and coming out with a wonderful Way Forward note. The conclave gave the participants an opportunity to understand the concept of "Teachers Professional Development" and to develop the best practices and approach for effective teaching and learning. For Alpine Concern, it was a beautiful association and we had great time working together with Di4C. We look forward to continue our association and engage ourselves in our various upcoming projects.
Vithika Yadav RNW | Head - India
Love Matters India
Di4C's session on Theory of Change provided us with a comprehensive overview of what the TOC process means and entails. Specifically, the activity that centered on discussing the role and responsibilities of different team members was very helpful.
It provided some food for thought, as well as action points on further team building and improving communication within the team. The Level 1 session was helpful in terms of articulating and consolidating a shared goal and vision for Love Matters (LM) India, and to have all the team members on the same page regarding the goal we are working towards, collectively.
Our team has a suggestion that the 3 hour time allotted for Level 1 must be extended. Overall, the TOC session was highly interactive and provided us an opportunity to also think more about how we can get LM India on the radar of other organizations and groups, build on our current reach and audience, and amplify our work.
Shubhangi Sharma | Executive Director
Indian Public Library Movement (IPLM)
The Theory of Change (TOC) session conducted by Di4C was engaging and interactive. It indeed was felt helpful for the team to critically review their current roles and introspect against the organisational goal and ToC. The session has helped us to deep dive and understand where we are and where we want to be. The slot wise activities were completing to our requirement. There was a significant need for a session like this. We also felt post session that keeping in view the change we are striving for there is a continuous need to examine the processes, steps and short-term outputs & outcomes and also revisit our specific job roles. Thank you for guiding us towards the right direction.
