Theory of Change

The NHRF has been working to conduct an in-depth review and analysis of our work and that of our grantee partners and consulting with our local consultants, grantee partners, and others to develop our new and first-ever theory of change (ToC). After this process, we’re excited to launch our theory of change and its narrative component. The theory of change will guide our work as a partner and grantmaker by informing the support we provide to human rights work to achieve the defined outcomes and overall goal. It is a living document that represents our theory of how change is created and driven forward. It articulates expected outcomes and their preconditions that, together, form pathways of change that lead to the overall goal. We understand these processes to be non-linear, interconnected, interdependent, mutually reinforcing, and occurring simultaneously or separately.
