With a wide variety of local partners and multinational organizations, we develop, pilot and implement field-based international development activities in lower- and middle-income countries. We conduct and apply vigorous research and evaluation to provide governments and international aid agencies with the tools and expertise they need to measure the effectiveness of programs, initiatives and schools.
