KARTABYA is led by a diverse and skilled team with extensive expertise in both development action and research-based interventions. The team's varied experiences contribute to a dynamic and cross-functional approach to problem-solving, consistently yielding successful outcomes that have garnered appreciation from our co-travellers. Many team members hold advanced academic degrees across various disciplines and bring a wealth of experience from government and international agencies.
KARTABYA is dedicated to fostering sustainable development by actively engaging with grassroots and district-level organizations. One crucial aspect of its mission involves providing comprehensive technical and resource support across various stages of the project cycle. This support extends from the initial conceptualization and formulation phases to the on-the-ground implementation, meticulous documentation, and rigorous monitoring and evaluation processes. By offering expertise in these areas, the organization empowers local entities to effectively plan, execute, and assess their initiatives, thereby enhancing their overall impact.
A cornerstone of KARTABYA’s approach is its commitment to primary evidence-based field research. This involves designing robust research tools, employing a range of data collection methods such as structured and semi-structured tools, Participatory Rural Appraisal (PRA), and Participatory Learning and Action (PLA). This research methodology ensures a nuanced understanding of local contexts, enabling evidence-driven decision-making and the formulation of targeted interventions.
In addition to supporting grassroots initiatives, KARTABYA takes a broader perspective by conducting impact assessments of development interventions implemented by various Government and Non-Government Organizations. This comprehensive evaluation process allows for the identification of successful models and the dissemination of best practices, contributing to the continuous improvement of development strategies at both local and systemic levels.
Furthermore, KARABYA actively engages in the analysis of public policies, generating informed debates through the preparation of policy briefs. By critically examining policies, identifying gaps, and proposing evidence-based recommendations, the organization seeks to influence positive changes in the broader policy landscape, advocating for measures that address pressing social issues and promote inclusive development.
Recognizing the importance of collaboration, KARTABYA places a strong emphasis on building networks and alliances. This involves establishing connections with Civil Society Organizations (CSOs), research institutes, and high-end development professionals. By fostering these partnerships, we aim to create a collective force for positive change, leveraging shared knowledge, resources, and influence to amplify the impact of development efforts. Through this multifaceted approach, we actively contribute to building resilient and sustainable communities while shaping broader conversations on effective development practices and policies.
