We`re CHASP

We support governments, non-profits and the private sector to identify and deliver development and humanitarian programs with pace, certainty and strategic agility.

Our role is to give a hand, to generate knowledge, and to create linkages that promote learning and innovation. We work with organizations to translate innovative healthcare and social policy ideas, whether small or grand, whether local or global, into life changing initiatives. We want to inspire and let ourselves be inspired.

You are welcome to tap into the spirit of service that unites our community – to improve the reach and quality of healthcare and social protection programs in Africa

WHAT WE DO

RESEARCH, EVIDENCE AND DATA VISUALIZATION

RESEARCH, EVIDENCE AND DATA VISUALIZATION

We are good at generating evidence on diverse subjects that lead to important decisions. Our studies allow us to test what works about public policies and programs, and to generate insights, and observations that would be useful for improving the delivery of programs. Our methods include participatory assessments, spatial analysis, cross-sectional and longitudinal studies, comparative (quasi-experimental) studies, and sophisticated modelling and simulations.

Our teams capture and leverage high-quality data, both structured and unstructured, using complex surveys, administrative data, social media, the “Internet of Things,” sensor information and more. We assist clients to collect, analyse and transform data into actionable insights and data-driven decision-making.

Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning

Monitoring, Evaluation and Learning

We are good at tracking and managing results for development and humanitarian programs. We have a lot of experience in designing M&E systems, and in leading independent evaluations in diverse environments and sectors. We apply both quantitative and qualitative methods in gathering critical performance data through cross-sectional, or longitudinal studies which can either be experimental or quasi-experimental. We help to propagate learning and knowledge-based on evidence gathered during these evaluations. Most importantly we actively engage in discourse that improves the practice of Monitoring and Evaluation.

Specifically, we support our partners to strengthen routine monitoring, conduct independent external evaluations, developing M&E Information Systems/Data management, and with Third-Party Monitoring. We have extensive experience incorporating MEL throughout program cycles and we promote the use of Collaborative, Learning, and Adaptive (CLA) approaches. We support the design of programs that reflect the complexities of the environments in which they are to be implemented – whether that would be a refugee camp, conflict zone, underserved rural/urban community, or a humanitarian situation.

Innovations in Global Health and Social Protection

Innovations in Global Health and Social Protection

We create platforms where Health and Social Policy professionals shape trends by exchanging knowledge to produce social value. As East Africa’s largest platform for structured Global health and Social Protection discourse, our innovation hub helps Sector practitioners and communities to freely connect, share knowledge, advance innovations, and share great ideas in a formal space.

Innovators at the Hub will challenge you to stretch your thinking boundaries. Featured speakers are crowdsourcing humanitarian response, driving policy, and using innovative technology to drive health and social service delivery. They are building medical devices out of broken toys and using boats, motorcycles, and mobile phones to care for people. They are developing simulation models and creating platforms for better management of data. They are using film and photography to change mindsets, visualizing data to make people pay attention, and sharing their ideas, and designs to achieve great milestones in human development.

CHASP Media

CHASP Media

We produce creative content in print and online, which amplify key development related messages and we do this with an eye for creative details and a focus on positioning and disseminating content to targeted, relevant audiences.

We create and develop knowledge materials, workshops, training, and innovation processes aimed at educating and empowering young people to take action. We produce content, design processes, create innovation programs, and communicate insights to advance knowledge and awareness about issues related to global development and sustainability.

We design, plan, and execute events, convenings, and conferences that engage diverse stakeholders across the global challenges such as poverty, health, social policy, inequality and climate change. We work with partners to convene individuals and organizations from across the globe to collaborate on pressing issues

Capacity Development

Capacity Development

CHASP Learning Centre has been growing, innovating, discovering, launching, and improving the careers of some of the most accomplished and influential women and men in the Health and Social Policy Sectors in Eastern Africa. Today we stand among a select group of organizations providing tailor-made learning through fieldwork, networking, and engagement with some of the best innovative programs in the region.

An outstanding feature of our courses is the integration of Workshop type training, research, and field experience. Our skills-based curriculum, practicum program, and extensive community-based service programs position learners for better careers in research, industry, government, and academia. We are soon to introduce an interactive e-learning option to cater to individuals with demanding work schedules.

Design & Strategy

Design & Strategy

We work with our clients to help them clarify and articulate the logic that underpins their programming and operations, as the foundation for effective intervention. We then help devise appropriate strategies and activities to achieve these goals in unstable settings.

CHASP advocates a cyclical (as opposed to linear) design-evaluate-redesign approach through which it is continually necessary to test the Theories of Change and underlying assumptions based upon a constantly developing understanding of context. Implementers must be prepared for interventions to perform unexpectedly, and be ready to adapt.
