As an ethically driven business, we combine humanitarian passion with entrepreneurial agility to think and do things differently.
Our research is about generating evidence and learning for the sector, drawing on the knowledge of local experts. We seek to articulate the complex challenges that exist in the humanitarian system and make sure that everyone can play a role in crafting a solution.
As an independent organisation we bring a fresh perspective to how we understand impact. We aim to produce accessible evaluations and reviews that lay out clear pathways for improvement and capture success stories.
We bring people together to collectively reflect, take stock and plan. We enjoy learning about and helping address practical challenges facing teams, as well as bringing current best practice and new ideas to the table.
We support humanitarian agencies and donors to develop or adapt policies and programs that reflect best practice and continual learning. We are able to use our practical experience and extensive networks to bring current thinking into the mix.
Working in partnership is fundamental for research to achieve impact greater than the research itself. We aim to support localisation principles and to support local organisations, networks and consultants in the countries where we work.
