Impact report - UK Aid Direct

We were delighted to receive support through UK Aid Direct in 2019 and, two years later, we are proud to be sharing this impact report. It has clearly been a challenging period, with plenty of disruptions and setbacks along the way, however the report shows that despite this adversity the project achieved some very positive results. 

More than 250 jobs have been created or improved, helping workers and their families plan for the future and invest in education, housing and healthcare. Business have been supported to manage the worst impacts of Covid, benefiting from emergency loans, repayment holidays, and high-touch technical support. 

This report reviews Balloon’s performance against logframe indicators defined pre-project. It also describes the key insights and recommendations generated through the project, in the hope that other organisations can apply these learnings to their own work.
