What is its purpose?

This indicator helps Tearfund and its partners understand the total financial value of the assistance (in British pounds) provided using any of the three main modalities: cash, vouchers and in-kind support. The amount should not include any staff, logistics or other costs related to providing this assistance. This indicator is mandatory for all projects providing cash / voucher / in-kind assistance.

How to Collect and Analyse the Required Data

Determine the indicator’s value by using the following methodology:

 

1) Request relevant financial and project staff to provide evidence of 1) the amount of cash / voucher / in-kind assistance provided to each beneficiary as a part of the project and 2) the total financial value of the provided assistance. This can include, for example:

- distribution lists (for vouchers and in-kind support), bank statements (for bank transfers), relevant project reports

- financial documents (receipts, invoices, etc.)

 

2) Use available post-distribution monitoring (PDM) data to verify the amount of provided assistance (not purchased assistance – it must be data on what was actually given to the project beneficiaries). If required, use the PDM findings to adjust the data on the amount of provided assistance and its financial value accordingly.

 

3) The indicator’s value equals to the financial value (in British pounds) of the assistance that was actually provided to the project beneficiaries. It should only include the value of the provided cash payments / vouchers / in-kind support, not including any staff, logistics or other costs.

Important Comments

1) This indicator helps Tearfund and its partners understand the total financial value of the assistance provided using any of the three main modalities: cash, vouchers and in-kind support.

 

In order to know how much money was spent on each of these modalities (on cash / vouchers / in-kind), always use in addition to this indicator one of the following indicators:

- total financial value (in GBP) of the provided cash assistance (see guidance)

- total financial value (in GBP) of the provided voucher assistance (see guidance)

- total financial value (in GBP) of the provided in-kind assistance (see guidance)
