We are an international development firm, leveraging interconnected solutions that combine research, evaluation, institutional strengthening, and behavior change communication to promote prosperity and resilience in challenging contexts.

We aim to enable and empower communities under pressure from conflict or its aftermath, and in underdeveloped and developing states more generally, to reclaim their own agency, and build prosperous economies and resilient societies.

We collaborate with governments, civil society organizations, international aid and development organizations, and corporations through a combination of robust, data-driven research and deep, place-based engagement to make international development more effective, inclusive, and sustainable. We harness the power of evidence and data to co-design and deliver solutions that contribute to transforming the extraordinarily vulnerable communities we serve.

Founded in 2009, we have delivered over 120 projects across multiple sectors for over 100 clients in Afghanistan. In 2023, we broadened our impact by establishing local presence and forging strategic partnerships in Ethiopia, Kazakhstan, Ukraine, Uzbekistan, Yemen, and India. Combining our efforts and sharing our knowledge and experience with our local partners, our reach now is broad and deep, experientially and intellectually.
