What people say about us

Prisca Benelli, Senior Monitoring and Evaluation Advisor, Save the Children UK: “I find Evidence Aid brilliant because of its ethos, value and mission. I have found all the events it created, such as the Humanitarian Evidence Week and the training courses, great opportunities. I love that EA responded to the challenge of a tight economic environment by tapping into the energy of students! It’s such a friendly organisation and I value the humanness of the organisation the longevity of the staff. I encourage my colleagues to use Evidence Aid to look for evidence. Save the Children has a strong ethos of following evidence-based decision processes through ‘common approaches’. Something which is endorsed as a common approach must be evidence-based with an evidence review so staff are encouraged to look to find approaches which already have evidence behind them.”

Colette Fearon, Director of Impact and Engagement, ELRHA: “Evidence is important to decision-making but is often inaccessible to practitioners and it’s often that the evidence isn’t easily available or is dense. Evidence Aid can bring out the synthesis and make it accessible to practitioners so that it saves time and facilitates the use of evidence.”

Ahmad Firas Khalid, Assistant Professor, McMaster and York Universities: “Collaborating with Evidence Aid has been an incredibly enriching journey, revealing the immense value of a partnership built on shared goals and dedication. Their steadfast commitment to generating and disseminating high-quality evidence summaries plays a critical role in informing decision-making within time-sensitive contexts. These succinct and accessible syntheses empower humanitarian aid organizations to rapidly navigate complex information landscapes, enabling them to make informed, data-driven decisions in the face of evolving challenges. As a result, Evidence Aid’s work has not only reinforced my conviction in evidence-based practice but also illuminated the transformative potential of timely, targeted, and actionable information in advancing humanitarian efforts globally.”

Juliet Parker, Director, ALNAP: “It [Evidence Aid] has identified the issue – use of evidence within the humanitarian sector. Some of the collections are interesting and the summaries are good as well as the usefulness of translation for accessibility. We’re impressed Evidence Aid translates the summaries.”

Kim Scriven, Executive Director, H2H Network: So much work is not based on credible evidence, it’s just based on experience and informal exchange; it’s really important to have actors such as Evidence Aid banging the drum for robust evidence in the sector because we have an obligation to try to improve what we do.”
