Consultancy

We provide consultancy services in all our core areas of competencies: Monitoring and Evaluation, Project Management, Research and customised Training. Our services have continue to received wider acceptance and commendation from Governments, Corporate and Private sectors including the Third sector, and we are pleased with the welcome trend. We aim to provide top range intervention in the ladder of social and economic development.

Our management consultancy work is broad, therefore we are committed to conduct our work in honesty, integrity and dogged dedication to helping people and organizations live their full potentials. Because we reside within the community and understand the local dynamics of our work environment, our team of experts are among the best resources to governments, donor agencies and NGOs; working together to translate poverty reduction strategies into concrete results.
Poverty reduction is the ultimate goal of many development interventions; the achievement of the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) is substantive to this goal. Ra-ah consultancy work supports these efforts in Africa in several ways but specifically through partnerships:

Partner with Governments:  We partner with Government Ministries, Departments and Agencies (MDAs); Local Authorities and Communities on a sustainable basis to reach their development goals. We sparsely provide a one-off intervention. Our strategy is one that starts from conceptual idea to planning, implementation and evaluation of public sector reform.

Partner with Global Institutions:  Many reputable organizations like the World Bank, the United State Agency for International Development (USAID), the United Nations (UN), the European Union (EU), the African Development Banks (ADB), the British Department for International Development (DFID) etc are incredibly committed to poverty reduction in Africa but the outcomes are often not commensurate. One of the many reasons for this shortfall is the gap between development ideologies and realism.

Our attempts to contribute in the search for solutions to this problem is hinged on our strengths of knowledge, experience and location; we live where the poor reside so we understand the complexities, we work with donors and administer foreign aid, so we understand the dynamics. Consequently, RID is closing the gaps between ideology and realism and helping to translate global commitments in Africa to achievable results.

Partner with NGOs:  Our experts are trained to work closely with various government departments and units, communities and local people deploying specific strategies to institutionalize poverty reduction best practices. We know where the power to enable change resides and when to influence critical political decisions. RID provides assistance to various advocacy agencies whose work are in the business of – creating and sustaining bonds of solidarity between the state and individuals ( the lack of it in many countries of Africa is an outcome of a failed state), promoting government support for Voice and Accountability in Nigeria.
