Promote economic development by impartially measuring and rating the effectiveness of enterprise
Whythawk Ratings (white-hawk) promotes economic development by impartially measuring and rating the effectiveness of enterprise, education and health relief interventions of development organisations and charities.
Whythawk also conducts research on behalf of donors to investigate regional development needs and assist in ongoing surveillance and vigilance of their social investment initiatives.
A Whythawk rating is an opinion on a development organisation's future performance. Whythawk’s goal is to provide ratings that embody high-quality and impartial delivery analysis. Whythawk evaluates weaknesses as well as strengths to determine the organisation's ability and willingness to deliver on the needs identified within their target sector.
Ratings components include:
A management and accountability rating
An effectiveness of service delivery rating
A strategic planning and execution rating
An overall rating
A Rand value statement of funding requirements
