Mastercard Foundation′s Impact Pulse Platform

DPA developed the Sector Pulse Platform, a data-driven tool that will provide the Mastercard Foundation (MCF) with access to key information on global and regional trends relevant to its work in Africa. This tool will support the foundation’s future investment decisions with an evidence-based and system-change approach. Additionally, the tool will grow the organizational awareness and understanding of the most important issues shaping social debates in Africa. The development of this tool is structured across 4 project phases: discovery, development, reporting, and training. The platform is structured around three data modules: The ‘Impact Evidence’ module, the ‘Social Listening’ module, and the ‘Policy and Funding Development’ module.
