Guidance: How to Compile a Success Story
In developing this guidance, Africare aimed to produce a simple and concise guidance for writing "success stories" to be used by Africare field staff and report writers, as well as relevant staff of other Private Voluntary Organizations (PVO) and Cooperating Sponsors (CS). A success story illustrates a positive change in a Title II program by telling the "who, what, where, why, when, and how" of an individual, household, or community in an anecdotal story that represents the case of many. This guidance describes the six-step process for identifying a success story during routine project discussion groups, presents a suggested template for writing the success story, and makes suggestions for using photographs to enhance the success story's impact.
