About Us

At EDI Global quality is in our DNA. From conducting in-depth quantitative and qualitative research to designing and implementing impact evaluations and providing comprehensive Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning (MEL) services, we are dedicated to producing evidence that is relevant, robust, and reliable. Our solutions inform evidence-based decision-making, promote learning and innovation, and contribute to sustainable development outcomes. Our work is primarily focused on East Africa, but we also provide global research and technical support on multi-country studies to a diverse range of partners.

EDI Global offers expertise in MEL, research design and implementation. We deliver a range of evaluations including impact evaluations, theory-based and performance evaluations. We also support our partners and clients in monitoring project performance through baseline, midline and endline surveys, as well as rapid learning cycles. And we provide meaningful insights through rigorous analysis, interpretation, and visualization of data. Attention to detail, academic rigour, and local expertise are the cornerstones of our work. We take great pride in delivering services that meet the highest quality standards and which reflects a deep understanding of the communities we serve.

Over 75% of our staff are based in East Africa giving our project teams in-depth understanding of the local context. Our international team provides capacity building, global strategy, technical support, quality assurance, and innovation, ensuring that we produce international quality research which recognises and amplifies the voices of those from the communities in which it was collected. We work across a range of sectors including agriculture, health, education, early childhood development, water and sanitation, private sector development and social protection. In 2018, EDI Global became part of Mathematica. Mathematica applies expertise at the intersection of data, methods, policy, and practice to address complex social challenges and improve well-being around the world. Mathematica creates and uses evidence to help bilateral and multilateral donors, government agencies, non-governmental organizations (NGOs), and philanthropic and private sector actors improve programmes, refine strategies, and advance knowledge. Over the past two decades, Mathematica has developed a large portfolio of international development work that spans more than 50 countries across Africa, Asia, Latin America, and Europe.
