Research

Asking questions that matter in ways that matter

We support communities and collaborators to identify their own research priorities and call the shots. We design research projects in conversation with clients and with methods that support innovation, sustainability, and social change. Our mission is to build research capacity in communities so we can work ourselves out of a job.

 

Across all types of research contracts, we:

  1. Commit to capacity-building activities with clients and communities

  2. Disrupt cycles of dependence with sustainable initiatives

  3. Amplify community strengths with an anti-oppressive lens

Evaluation

Transforming lessons learned into new possibilities

Evaluation has a bad reputation for making people feel like they are on trial. To us, evaluation is about helping you reach your goals. We capture your learning  with creative evaluation tools and frameworks that elevate your successes. We join your work family to build trust, understand your goals, and implement monitoring metrics that keep you on track. Then, we share learning, strategies, and ideas with you to support your vision for sustainable change initiatives. That's it. No trials. Just learning and strategic planning.

We specialize in the following types of evaluation: 

  • appreciative inquiry

  • case study

  • developmental evaluation

  • empowerment evaluation

  • most significant change

  • outcome mapping 

  • principle-based evaluation

  • theory-based evaluation

Whether you have an evaluation requirement in your grant, want to leverage learning in your work, or need a partner on a bid or project, here's how we can help:

  • collaborate on a grant or bid

  • create a Theory of Change

  • facilitate strategic planning

  • scale and adapt projects 

  • design monitoring metrics

  • conduct any size evaluation

  • train your team to conduct evaluation in house

Creating change by building capacity

Have you ever snoozed through a boring lecture? We have! That's why we design experiential learning frameworks. With fun and hands-on educational activities, we elevate skill development, personal growth, and target learning performances. Starting from an anti-oppressive lens, we foster brave learning environments where critical thinking, honest questions, and mistakes are welcome.

Plus, we love learning too! With education credentials, we can transform your ideas into an original curriculum or learn alongside you as we innovate new capacity-building approaches together.
