Guiding you toward success
It’s one thing to design a good policy or program, it’s another to make it happen.
We facilitate the emergence of local solutions, bringing legitimacy to the process.
Engage with others
We engage broadly with stakeholders and actors to mobilize resources.
learn and iterate
We learn together along the way, building up local capabilities.
Scale and diffuse
We coordinate with multiple agents to diffuse knowledge.
novel & tested approach
Ara uses problem-driven approaches to solve complex development challenges. We understand that solution-based approaches that prescribe predetermined recipes do not always work in contexts with high risk and uncertainty. Politics often get in the way, instead of getting stuck and abandoning the process, we strategically find entry points to move forward with implementation.
We specialize in breaking down problems, engaging others, and mobilizing resources to get things done. Through broad engagement, we ensure that our work is practical, legitimate, and leaves behind long-lasting impact.
We facilitate the emergence of local solutions, bringing legitimacy to the process; learning along the way together to build local capabilities, and rapidly iterating to bring in new insights and coordinate with multiple agents to diffuse knowledge and grow.
