what works.
Eleven.

We support mentoring organizations that employ validated social interventions by providing them with a house in which they can collaborate, learn and grow. And we give them with access to scientifically sound research.

Approach
We offer co-working spaces for mentoring organizations and comparable institutions that have proven to be effective. In addition, we provide ample opportunities from them to grow through joint workshops, lectures, tailor-made development programs and consulting offerings. To ensure continued maximum impact, we finance independent research projects aimed at measuring impact.

Learnings
Measured impact, as determined by scientific research, is not yet a relevant currency in the social sector. Fragmented financing limits growth. Sustainable growth is challenged by financial instability. Cooperation in the social sector is still in its infancy.

Results
Despite a notorious lack of funding, the organizations associated with Eleven have seen significant growth. All organizations associated with Eleven have started to assess their impact, some with impressive results.

Why the name “Eleven”? In its English meaning, it refers to the eleven individuals that make up a soccer team. In its French meaning, it refers to “élève”, a student. This reflects the target group that Eleven and its partners in research and implementation focus on: children and youth in education. To sum it up: Eleven is our contribution to more effectiveness in the social sector.
