Our dedicated team of experienced consultants and researchers supported by our highly qualified management aspires to provide expert, top-quality consultancy, monitoring and training services to international and local NGOs, businesses, donors and third parties with vested interest in different aspects of humanitarian action.

Our work addresses the growing demand for third party M&E services in the light of intensified humanitarian response to the escalating civilian suffering in Syria and other parts of the MENA region.
