RESEARCH

Ark and Mark Trust has qualified researchers and evaluation experts with PhDs and Masters Degree.  We believe in programs that are based on facts and that are evaluated throughout to assess impact and effectiveness. Our programs build in formative, process as well as outcome evaluation. We do evaluation of different levels including research-based evaluation for international publications in journals and program-focused evaluation (for donors, supporting government departments, partners and program implementers). We collaborate with different universities around the world and work with world renowned scholars and therapy  experts. Any organization can access our research evaluation services.

Research is a key component of our operation. We have expanded the research unit to assist various international researchers who are interested in any type of social science research that can benefit the country. Our staff can be your research assistants to link you to the right departments, right sources, help follow-up your research permits, prepare the research ground for you and collect data. We have extensive experience working with international researchers, collecting data and imputing quantitative and qualitative data and publishing with them. Contact us

 

We have worked in Dalhausie University in Canada through The resilience research center and university on Bergen in Norway as well as western Norway university of applied sciences, and in partnership with Botswana’s Department of Social protection
