We employ quantitative (questionnaire-based and online surveys), qualitative (in-depth interviews, focus groups, content analysis, etc.) and mixed-method studies to gain valid and valuable evidence.
We are committed to make sure that lived experience of vulnerable children and adults are at the center of our research.
We pay special attention to the ethical and methodological aspects of including children and adults who have experienced trauma in our research.
Our expertise in research and evidence can be used by authorities and partner organizations to develop policies, programs, guidelines and trainings that directly help to promote health and protect people from abuse and exploitation.
We develop and implement monitoring and evaluation systems and methodologies for programs and projects promoting health and protecting the rights of children and adults.
Through analysis, tracking, and reporting on relevant data and information throughout a project’s life cycle, greater transparency and accountability are achieved.
Monitoring & Evaluation provides stakeholders, community members, and donors with key evidence for all decisions and actions throughout the project. M&E data helps the involved parties learn from the successes and challenges of a project and be more adaptive.
We deliver a practice-oriented training courses for professionals working in public health, education, social work, and human rights.

We help turn children’s organizations into a space that is free from violence, including bullying, discrimination, emotional pressure, manipulation, fears and mistrust, a safe space for all – children and teenagers, their parents, teachers and tutors.
Together with the managers, staff members, children and their parents, we develop and help to implement ‘Child Safeguarding Policies’, i.e. sets of practical procedures to prevent, identify and respond to abuse and other unacceptable behavior in a children’s organization.

Evidence-based intervention works, and we are constantly learning how to do better. We develop and implement prevention programmes to change people’s knowledge, attitudes, and behaviours and to achieve long-term prevention results.

We select a variety of prevention methods that are appropriate for the target audience.
We implement the program and conduct program evaluation throughout the program’s life cycle, as well as upon completion of the program and further follow-up.
