Our Work

Ra-ah International Development (RID) is a regional development consortium, currently operational in the United Kingdom and Africa. About 80% of our work is in Africa through our subsidiary office in Nigeria – the Ra-ah Institute of Development which is located in Kaduna and Abuja.

Monitoring and Evaluation

Research and policy analysis
Project Management
Training and Certification.

Our clients:

We work with government institutions, Ministries, Department and Agencies (MDAs) to offer pragmatic solutions in defining and managing public policy goals and objectives, within their development needs and resource availability. We equally support governments, donors and the third sector to deliver pro-poor services by developing and managing capacities to implement, monitor and evaluate the impacts of their development programmes and projects.

We mobilise and build capacities of communities. Through the local authorities, we enhance the capabilities of rural people to participate, own and sustain development programmes and projects.

Currently, our work is predominantly resident in Northern Nigeria as we have a wide understanding of the challenges and prospects of the region. Since 2004 RID has been working alongside Northern States to support policy planning and implementation, initiate, train and implement M&E at the State Local Government (LG) levels.

Monitoring and Evaluation (M&E)

We design, train and implement M&E frameworks using traditional and modern strategies. Our M&E frameworks are flexible and scalable, i.e can be used for simple and small projects or large and complex programmes. We are strong in conducting impact assessments of small or large development programmes and projects.

Research and Policy Analysis

Our research activities are policy focused with emphasis on institutional reform, capacity building and concrete evidence- based development decisions. Consequently we conduct feasibility studies, situation analysis; training needs analysis, mapping and etc using modern qualitative and quantitative methodologies.

We are promoting collaboration and partnership between project management and social development experts to improve the use of project management methodologies and tools in reaching the Millennium Development Goals (MDGs) in Nigeria and other parts of Africa.


Our training institute (Ra-ah Institute of Development) is uniquely positioned to provide additional and alternative qualifications in socio-economic development methodologies, statistics, and project management in Nigeria and other parts of Africa. The courses are certified by the Project Management Institute (PMI). They are designed for professionals and beginners alike.
