Theory of change
This is the guiding theory about the change you expect to see from doing your project. It is a high-level description of your project activities, the issue or opportunity you are trying to address in your community, and the anticipated project outcomes.
The logic model is used to help build more detail of what you will need to do to achieve results. It helps you to think about what you will need to have and do as part of your project, and some of the potential risks, results and impacts.
This tool helps you choose indicators of change and to plan the way that you will collect data for your project. It helps you think through who in your team will be doing this work and when it will need to happen.
