Abstract:To plan the next step for expanding the use of information and communication technology (ICT) in developing countries, it is essential to evaluate the effectiveness and impact of ICT for development (ICT4D or ICTD), reflecting the evolving meanings of the technologies to people. As a way to operationalize Capability Approach, Community Wellness Outcomes (CWO) Toolkit aims to assess a set of outcomes that indicate advanced individual freedoms, and are not assessed by traditional economic indicators such as income or wealth. The Toolkit consists of various instruments such as workshop (focus group) guide, Likert scale and interview questions, and participatory photography activities guide. This study will be regarding the first implementation of CWO Toolkit instruments in Ghana, scheduled between August and September 2016. The work will primarily focus on assessing the feasibility of implementing the Toolkit for broader use.
