for general operating support
Innovations for Poverty Action (IPA) is a nonprofit research and policy advocacy organization that conducts randomized evaluations of development interventions to help the world’s poor. In addition to sharing evidence with development practitioners, policymakers, and donors, IPA provides direct advice to decision makers on how to use the evidence. General operating support would help IPA strengthen their global research capacity, expand their policy and communications capabilities, and deepen their ability to translate evaluation findings into policy impact.
for implementing and evaluating the impact of a peer-to-peer teaching model in Kenya
Many first, second, and third graders in Kenya are struggling to learn to read. This grant to Innovations for Poverty Action would continue to support the evaluation of a simple, low-cost method to improve reading achievement in which sixth graders tutor second and third graders to help them become more fluent readers.
