The Ford Family Program in Human Development Studies and Solidarity

Research and community engagement that informs action

The Ford Family Program in Human Development Studies and Solidarity conducts research and evaluation that can inform development theory and practice while making a positive, measurable, and sustainable difference in people’s lives.

With the goal of understanding the challenges and aspirations of people living in extreme poverty around the developing world, we conduct research that grows out of engagement with local communities.

We learn from community members, working with partner organizations that directly implement programs to provide quality education, enhance health, foster livelihoods, and promote accountable and responsive government.

We assist development practitioners, policy makers, and people grappling with poverty in their own communities to increase the effectiveness of their efforts to promote integral human development, a holistic model of flourishing rooted in the dignity and full potential of each person.
