What we do
Support communities that need help the most
We bring together those who need help (communities, schools, city halls, groups of people) with those who can provide it (companies, people, civic groups etc.). We support local teams to develop projects. We monitor these projects and report back to donors.
Field monitoring of what works and what not, and why
We verify in a structured way how laws are being applied on the ground and how public funds are spent. We learn about the problems that make certain laws, policies or programs not work as well as they should. We identify, analyze and promote good practices that can be scaled up.
Support for public administration professionals
We organize research visits and experience exchanges in poor communities for professionals from different sectors and fields. We inform, train and mentor public employees, in order to help them apply legislation better. We support the development of intersectorial networks.
Applied studies and advocacy
We do impact evaluations for strategic projects. We analyze gaps in laws or procedures and propose public policies to fix these. We signal improper applications of the law, public system abuse or systemic problems.
