Using Gross National Happiness principles for NGO reporting


The GNH index besides helping policy makers, can help business, civil servantsall citizens in undersstadning how they can increase the GNH - Alison Singer, Gross National Happiness, Eternal Bhoomi, V5 N1, March 2014.


As most Donors are asking for analysis of outcome rather than outputs, we can use principles of GNH. 

GNH indicators are

psychological well being
time use
good governance
cultural diversity & resilience
community vitality,
ecological diversity and resilience &
living standards

So why cant we use these indicators, for our log frames and outcome indicators. It will help us orient implementation of our programmes. It will also give our field based workers a sense of metrics, direction and accomplishment.
