Evidence for Change (e4c) is a leading humanitarian research organization in East Africa that is committed to reshaping the landscape of humanitarian work through innovative approaches. Collaboration is at the core of our operational & research endeavours as we aim to produce context-specific evidence that informs policy decisions. Our goal is to elevate the health and wellbeing of those affected by humanitarian crises.

Our Objectives
e4c’s key objective is to improve programming and policy in support of health, nutrition and WASH for crisis affected communities in Somalia and the region. 

Our approach
At e4c, we serve as a one-stop destination for evidence-based services aimed at enhancing the understanding of what works, for whom, why, and at what cost, to promote the health and wellbeing of people affected by humanitarian emergencies. Our comprehensive approach to research design and execution generates a wealth of valuable information for those in decision-making roles.

Thematic areas:

Conduct high quality operational research

At e4c, we are dedicated to conducting rigorous operational research. Our aim is to uncover valuable insights that drive effective programming and policies in the realms of health, nutrition, WASH, Food security, Social protections, Resilience and Migration & Displacement. We employ robust methodologies to generate evidence that informs decision-making and positively impacts communities affected by crises.

Act as a learning partner for health and nutrition actors:

We believe in the power of collaboration and knowledge sharing. As a learning partner, we work closely with health and nutrition stakeholders to facilitate learning, exchange best practices, and adapt strategies based on evidence. Our goal is to empower actors in these fields to continuously improve and innovate.

Strengthen research capacity:

 Building research capacity is at the core of our mission. We offer training, mentorship, and resources to individuals and organizations, equipping them with the skills and knowledge needed to conduct meaningful research. By strengthening research capacity, we contribute to a stronger evidence base and more informed decision-making.

Support policy formulations through dialogue:

 Dialogue is key to effective policy-making. We engage in constructive discussions with policymakers, practitioners, and communities to understand their needs and perspectives. Through meaningful dialogue, we aim to shape policies that are evidence-driven, context-specific, and responsive to the challenges faced by crisis-affected populations.
