Communication Strategy and Research

Through extensive research, inherent knowledge of the landscape and contextual analysis we help craft holistic communication strategies for nonprofits and augment social impact through monitoring and evaluation (M&E) interventions

Communications strategy requires discipline, rigor, and critical thinking – three domains that our team at ASSIST is equipped with. We understand that effective development communication is a rightful mix of science and creativity; we leverage our development sector experience, audience research capabilities and creative flair to craft communication strategies and plans that go beyond the fluff. We occasionally go beyond the plan and develop communication toolkits that serve a lasting purpose for stakeholders with limited internal capacity.

Building on strong local context, development mindset and experience of implementing grants and impact interventions, ASSIST helps organizations run Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E) studies across sectors and thematic areas including health, social protection and environmental aspects. In addition, the team can execute qualitative and statistical research projects be it for perception analysis, market insights or other purposes.

Supply of Unpolluted and Clean Drinking Water to Rural Communities

A WHO-UN joint report in 2015 found that as many as 8.4M Filipinos don’t have access to clean drinking water and are highly susceptible to water-borne diseases.

SOURCe is a partnership with DEG and Vestergaard that aims to prevent waterborne diseases posed by untreated water sources in vulnerable rural areas through the provision of capacity building and change communication for the communities on the use of new technology.
