Our Work

Strengthening violence prevention programming

Our team has extensive experience in the areas of gender equality and prevention of violence against women and girls. We have a strong, nuanced understanding of gender-based violence and evidence-based violence prevention approaches. We are experienced in working across the program cycle to increase the impact of violence prevention programs, including formative research, program design, monitoring and evaluation, and staff training and development.

Monitoring and evaluation

We have technical expertise in monitoring, evaluation, and learning, and we have experience leading evaluations for a range of social justice programs across the globe.

We use a range of methodologies to conduct mixed-methods evaluations. Program theory forms the foundation of all our evaluations, regardless of their design. We also support clients to develop or revise program theory using a range of techniques, including theory of change.

Our team advocate for participatory and inclusive approaches to evaluations, including using participatory processes to develop methodologies and collect and analyse data.
