Who We Are

We are a seasoned, globally positioned team of professional development practitioners with decades of experience in grassroots development. We are committed to helping communities, aid agencies and governments to analyze problems and to design and implement lasting solutions that create resilient communities. We work as the international “wing” of Applied Survey Research (ASR), a nonprofit social research firm dedicated to conducting and using research to help our clients build better communities. Because we are not profit-seeking, we can offer rates that are significantly lower than other consulting groups.
