OUR WORK

Good project design happens when we bring together technical expertise
with a strong understanding of the local context.
This is why applied research is at the core of what we do.

But we don’t stop there. We also provide strategic consulting and training
services to help you improve the impact of your work at the local level.

OUR SERVICES

We provide various levels of service, depending on your research needs.

RESEARCH TAILORED TO FIT YOUR NEEDS

We are experts in community-centred research. Working with local researchers and academics in our network, we take a grounded theory approach to examining local cultural, social, economic and political life, and then using this data to help you improve your programming to better fit the local context. We have conducted this type of research in different countries around the world, with great success. Our focus is inter-sectoral with a strong fieldwork component.

Mentor and SUPPORT your research team

Already have local partners or allies who you have identified to lead the research, but need a senior researcher to help mentor and guide them? Supporting local partners or allies to lead the research can be an excellent option, as they bring deep contextual knowledge and are often well positioned to maximise research uptake. But it’s not always easy.


We provide remote mentoring and support for in-country researchers, supporting them to develop a strong research methodology that is technically sound, providing support and quality control during data collection, and working collaboratively to analyse and write up research findings.
