President letter CIAI is an association counting, in 2016, more than 1400 associates, mostly sharing the common experience, direct or indirect, that a child born in a Country far from us can become, in fact, a son. For this reason, our goal is to guarantee the respect of children’s rights, taking care of each child of those we meet and deal with by having the same respect and attention that we dedicate to our child, assuring him or her protection, inclusion, wellbeing. The care we devote to each child beneficiary – and consequently to his/her family, to the community he lives in – is deep and sensitive; it takes from the experience gained in all these years of activity but it also keeps looking for new solutions, the most appropriate for every single situation. The impact that CIAI has on the children taken care of, has therefore to be evaluated not only from a quantitative point of view, as regards the number of beneficiaries that we manage reaching with our activities, but even more from the qualitative point of view, by assessing the change that our action brings to the life of many children, which is sometime radical and ultimate, as for the adoptions. These children are often among the most vulnerable: children that lack caring, listening, children that are neglected, exploited, sick, involved in conflicts, kept in jail or without a family. For these children CIAI wants to represent a reference point, a support and guidance, just like any parent is for his own children. To achieve these goals, every day more than 160 employees and collaborators in Italy and in the 12 Countries where CIAI works, provide their expertise, experience and competence with enthusiasm and discipline. I want to thank all of them, the members and the associates, the supporters and the volunteers, for the results described in this report. Paola Crestani CIAI President

To be accountable for the work that has been done and for what has been achieved is, for our organization, an engagement that has not much to do with a pursuit of efficiency and effectiveness, but rather with a pursuit of meaning. By giving nothing for granted, not even our own existence, we face constantly the profound meaning of what we do, seriously and with commitment. The seriousness and commitment that only children can have, and that we observe every moment, since we have the privilege of taking care of them: sometimes with surprise, sometimes with incredulity, some others managing to recognize, beyond the cloudy veil of our adults’ eyes, the remembrance of ourselves. During this year the path of pursuit has developed around a new tool, for certain aspects complicated but, at the same time challenging and with no doubt extremely useful. With the assistance of Lang Foundation (Fondazione Lang) we have built CIAI Theory of Change, which is the model that defines how we work and the change we want to achieve, providing us with tools and methodologies to measure what we obtained. It is the last element – only in time-related terms – of a picture that we’ve been composing for a long time, under the title of “impact measurement”. Thanks to this report we achieve a further level of deepening and accuracy, having completed the theoretical frame in which we place ourselves. We defined outcome indicators for each activity area of the organization, making possible in this way to define CIAI global impact and not only the impact obtained in a single project – although a difficult task itself - . The overview we gained tells about us and all our work; about the beautiful things we see happening; about the challenges we face in defending the rights of the most fragile children. It’s a structured tale, which is not limited to the terse simplicity of a single number, but branches off and grows a set of values and evaluations. It takes time to read this story. To write it, it took us all our time. Paolo Palmerini CIAI Chief operating Officer

Methodology for data In the present impact report, the data that CIAI considered relate to the number of direct beneficiaries of the activities or services that have been carried out in 2016; they have been collected both through questionnaires directed to the services’ final users and through monitoring reports (annual or at the collecting and analysis end of interventions) of the projects implemented in the various locations of CIAI. However, quantitative data alone would have provided incomplete information about the context, which is often made of shades necessary to understand how the organization actually works, and for this reason the data have been integrated with researches, systematization of good practices, internal and external evaluations and with the direct involvement of children, our main beneficiaries and stakeholders. The quest for balance between the collection of quantitative and qualitative data assured, during the process of inquiry of the present document, that the data would give real and correct information for the current evaluation of the impact on our beneficiaries. Glossary and acronymus Accountability Activity/ Intervention Beneficiaries Impact Indicator Input Outcome Output Resilience The responsibility of narrating in a transparent way the results of the organization and accounting the use of financial resources. Actions carried out in order to obtain the results (outcomes and outputs) and to contribute to the achievement of change.

Effects of the intervention; the change produced on direct beneficiaries. Activities carried out and their immediate results. Individual, community and institutional ability to recover from a traumatic event, foreseen its risks and limit their impact. Stakeholder A person, group or institution, which is interested to and affected by an activity. Theory of change Impact evaluation Follow Up Partner Violence Specific and structured description of series of activities planned in order to produce a social change. The set of operations and procedures through which an organization evaluates the information collected about the change generated by its specific activity.

01 CIAI in numbers CIAI – Italian Association for Aid to Children – is an Italian Civil Society Or- ganization that since 1968 works in Italy and around the world for the promotion and protection of children’s rights. In the communities where it works, CIAI protects children assuring them a social and family adequate context, Emotional and psychological wellbeing and social inclusion. To do this CIAI develop long-term interventions to support the most vulnerable kids and their families, communities and institutions, in order to build resilient and inclusive societies. Children’s direct participation has central role in CIAI actions, in the exercise of their rights and duties. CIAI puts at the service of change all its history - born with intercountry adoption - its skills and its activities of study and awareness From 1968 to 2016 Since 1968, first Italian association for intercountry adoptions 3.080 Adopted children 30-40 Running projects each year 2.034 Adoptive families 25 Countries 532.189 Beneficiaries of CIAI activities since 2010 5

The intervention contributed to support families’ commitment to children’s education (making parents more conscious and self-sufficient, in the long run), by helping them continuing and completing their education cycle and improving their participation at both community and family level. The project serves as a point of reference for children’s rights and equal opportunities’ promotion in the slum. 9

02 Generating change In 2016 CIAI realized its own Theory of Change (ToC). The ToC is a participatory methodology of strategic planning and evaluation, established and recognized at a general level, in the context of the debates regarding evaluation methodologies for organizations working in the social sector. Through the formulation of its own ToC, an organization can tell how it sees the world (the initial situation against which it’s willing to intervene), how she thinks the world can change (the chain of intermediate results achieved gradually) and which is the world it wants to obtain (the final change to be achieved). At the center of the reasoning there is the “change” desired. With the ToC we looked for a methodology that would allow us to: • Strengthen the consistency of our work – STRATEGY • Introduce a new language – NARRATIVE • Create a new engagement for the organization – EVALUATION 11

Implement children rights. Impact and performance Impact, or final change, that we are willing to produce for the children of whom CIAI takes care is the positive transposition of the initial problem, and is formulated as follows: Children in the communities where CIAI works are safe and live in a positive and caring family environment. They go to school and have access to educational opportunities.They are in good conditions and happy and they are protagonists of their own lives. This is the meter with which we want to measure our work and it is independent from what we have or haven’t done: it is the change obtained. This means that each activity carried out by CIAI is oriented at obtaining the desired change and shall be verified through measures of performance and impact evaluations. In 2016 CIAI worked in particular on the clarity of organizational goals and the perseverance in maintaining a path oriented towards mission; on the accountability, following fixed performance standards, on completeness and accuracy of data managing; on the focus on outcomes and on the evidences of projects/services’ impact. As regards the impact evaluation, next years’ interventions will have the following references: ü Increase of evaluations that can show the impact of our actions (projects, services, campaigns), by applying consolidated methodologies such as the counter-factual analysis, the SROI evaluations, scientific researches and other with international value. ü Progressive consolidation of an evidence based CIAI methodology (with a demonstrated impact) and publication of results. 14
