After a consultation with Mobilization of LFCs Hub, members suggested nine factors that predict change in capacity in a community:

  1. Personal transformation of faith leaders
  2. Using scripture as unlocking and key
  3. Combo of technical and practical and scripture
  4. Champions/ facilitators – trained and supported
  5. Local participation in analysis and monitoring
  6. Linkage w advocacy
  7. Intertwined envisioning by LFCs and communities
  8. Building of momentum overtime – learning from others, showcasing, continual refreshment
  9. “Right” balance of local asset based work with external support – harnessing existing community resources

Working from the above factors, they created a Theory of Change to examine assumptions about what success looks like and how we contribute to change; and specifically analyzed the role of faith, drawing on any existing evidence base.
