REACH offers consulting services for all areas of your research projects. We can manage the entire research process, from design to execution and reporting, or we can help with the implementation of specific steps in the research process. We have the capacity to develop research methodologies, tools, and questionnaires; plan out the logistics of research or journalism projects through our network of on-the-ground contacts to ensure that your trip is safe and successful; carry out interviews in dangerous, hard-to reach areas and with vulnerable and traumatized populations that are generally hesitant to open up about their experiences; and provide nuanced analysis and write illuminating, engaging, in-depth reports in both English and Spanish.
REACH provides a wide range of educational services. We provide trainings on the issues in which we have expertise, help in the design and implementation of educational projects, and assist in the development of study abroad programs. Examples include training your personnel on our areas of expertise, whether they are NGO workers learning about a new topic, company employees acquiring knowledge and skills on social issues, or government officials developing the capacity to better enforce the law; design and implementation of formal and informal educational programs for children and adults alike; creation and administration of awareness-raising projects to provide vulnerable populations with valuable information to prevent them from being victimized and allow them to recognize and report abuses; and development and oversight of study abroad, cultural exchange, and volunteer programs that are meaningful, engaging, authentic, and safe.
REACH provides consulting services on a range of other types of projects that generate desirable, impactful, measurable, and sustainable outcomes. Examples of the types of projects that we have the capacity to carry out include design and implementation of development projects that take into account the perspectives and realities of the communities in which they are carried out; community consultations on extractive, agro-industrial, or public works projects that will ensure buy-in, trust-building, and authentic engagement with affected communities; consulting on the development of socially sustainable business practices for small and large businesses alike; and development and oversight of projects to help empower traditionally repressed groups, such as children, displaced people, indigenous and minority groups, and women.
