Ending Poverty Together - Food for the Hungry (FH) Canada EPISODE 14, 7th June 2021
How does God speak through statistics?

How does God speak through statistics?

with special guest Subodh Kumar, Food for the Hungry.

Oftentimes, numbers and statistics can be enough to make your eyes glaze over. But what if we viewed data in a different way? What if we recognized the story and the human faces behind each statistic?

In this episode, Subodh Kumar, Senior Director of Data for Good with Food for the Hungry, gets into the nitty gritty of monitoring and evaluation—but not in the way you would expect. 

Walk with him from the beginning of a community’s partnership with FH through to Graduation as he explains how data is really all about relationships. When we recognize that God is in a community long before any outside organizations arrive, then what may have once seemed like empty statistics suddenly become an incredible testimony of God’s work.
