Abstract:The Qualitative Impact Protocol (QuIP) was commissioned by the faith-based charity Tearfund to gain deeper insight into its Church and Community Mobilisation (CCM) programme in Uganda. CCM is based on a theory of development which is centred on self-empowerment and community-based social improvement, fostered through theological resources and religious spaces. The QuIP was conducted in four villages in the east and north of the country, where Tearfund had partnered with Pentecostal Assemblies of God (PAG) and Church of Uganda (CoU), respectively. The case study illustrates the scope for combining faith-based and evidence-informed approaches to rural poverty reduction. A priority of Tearfund’s was to share what it learned through the QuIP not only within the organization, but with its partners and community participants. To do so, it organized feedback and ‘unblindfolding workshops’. This chapter presents one of seven case studies exploring how the QuIP was used in specific contexts during 2016 and 2017.
