After several years of program participation, we initiated a study in 2016 to evaluate the outcomes of the LEI Program. As part of the study, we also interviewed a peer control group that had not participated in the LEI Program. 182 LEI participants and 172 control group participants were interviewed using a comprehensive survey including both quantitative and qualitative questions.

LEI Students and Alumni have initiated diverse income generation activities. We see this being started at the individual level, as well as, the group level.

Knowledge Transfer | Pay-It-Forward (PIF) is a unique facet of the program that encourages students to share the knowledge they have acquired with their families, communities, and beyond. Instilling a sense of responsibility towards the community and cultivating leadership are the pillars of the LEI model, this is a critical part of the community activism and leadership development.

Shown below is a snapshot of the impact for a subset of our Alumni.
