Methods

Culturally Responsive

  • We believe it is very important to be attuned to the struggles of people who are marginalized based on their race, ethnicity, and/or skin color.

  • We intentionally partner with black, indigenous, and people of color (BIPOC) and people from the Global South to deliver culturally responsive services, and to offer these services in people's native language.

 

  • Our team is experienced in consulting across the globe in English, Spanish, French, Hindi, German, Amharic, and Swahili. 

Highly Participatory

  • At Play for Change we believe the more stakeholder input, the better.

 

  • We lean on the principles of human-centered design and the techniques from the Technologies of Participation.

 

  • We integrate games, arts and crafts, and elements from nature to spark conversation and allow partners, stakeholders, and community members to have a dynamic and  meaningful experience with us.

Mixed-methods and Utilization Focused

  • We perform both summative and formative evaluation, and generally tend to apply a mixed-methods approach to our projects.

 

  • We also understand the importance of delivering products and services that changemakers can put to use immediately. Therefore, we fall in the utilization-focused side of the evaluation spectrum
