MamaYe – Social Return on Investment analysis

Nigeria

The Project

Started in 2012, E4A-MamaYe has used a combination of evidence and advocacy to drive accountability for maternal and newborn outcomes. E4A-MamaYe acts as a catalyst for action, using evidence strategically to generate political commitment, strengthen accountability and improve planning and decision making at sub-national and national levels.

In Nigeria, E4A-MamaYe supports the implementation of Maternal Perinatal Death Surveillance and Response (MPDSR) in three states and supports accountability mechanisms to ensure the use of findings from MPDSRs to guide advocacy and drive action to improve quality of care.

LAMP designed a study protocol for a social return on investment analysis on the digitisation of the Maternal Perinatal Death Surveillance and Response system in Nigeria.

Impact

  • The timing of the study and the interest and input from the client meant the findings from our work truly informed programme implementation
  • Working with an SROI expert brought new skills and experience to the team

Client Testimonial

  • The framework was very well received by the team. The engagement was carried out in a planned, consultative and thorough manner.  LAMP’s communication style, interaction with partners, response timeliness are all excellent.

    - Solar Nigeria Programme (SNP)
  • Lamp Development provided expertise to help shape our VFM Approach. They worked in a collaborative style, built a strong working relationship with staff and produced practical outputs which is exactly what we asked for. The outputs have already been used by our Project Managers to improve how we report VfM within on-going projects and words have also been included to increase our VfM scoring within bids. Thanks for all the help!

    - Practice Lead, Governance and State Building, Crown Agents
  • LAMP’s project objectives were achieved, and we received positive feedback from DFID on the final output. The report led to some interesting discussions with DFID and between partners. The number-crunching and the organization of data was excellent. I think we worked very well together. Jennifer and Susie were always prompt and responsive.

    - Senior manager – M&E, KEEP
  • The analysis LAMP made on the case study was very useful for the implementing partners and for users of the report to see the impact of the interventions in monetary and statistical terms. The benefits of both interventions were clearly seen. LAMP were very proactive in data collection and were flexible with regards to challenges in obtaining required data; they were quick to come up with alternative methods to capture data and were able to make use of the limited data available.

    - Crown Agents
  • We worked with LAMP for an evaluation of an adolescent suicide prevention project in Kazakhstan. LAMP were very professional in defining the scope of the cost-effectiveness stream of work, in dealing with the client, and in delivering within a quick time-frame when the data did arrive! We would work with them again.
