Research and Evaluation

Browse or filter to find information about our past and present research work. We’ve funded research and evaluation to improve the impact of our work and promote evidence-based practice in India and the UK. This includes a large scale randomised controlled trial (RCT) of a remedial education programme in India, in partnership with J-PAL, a global leader in the use of evidence to reduce poverty. Today, we fund research aligned with our partnerships, based on shared shared values and mutual interests.
