SI is currently providing technical assistance to the BMGF Nigeria Country Office (NCO) in the form of strategy development and MLE assistance. SI is developing a MLE Framework to track the performance of the NCO’s strategy and provide a framework for alignment of its portfolio and investment efforts in Nigeria. By tracking progress and assessing contribution, the MLE Plan aims to provide a fuller picture of the NCO’s investment and strategy and ultimately guide leadership decision-making.
SI supports the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation with strategic alignment analysis and organizational development services to improve health care coordination and results in two states in Nigeria.
In Ghana, Kenya, and Nigeria, the Discovery Project worked to improve girls’ education through use of technology in the classroom, teacher training, community engagement and outreach. Through rigorous impact evaluations SI examined the impacts of the project on girls’ enrollment, attendance, and learning, and on teaching skills, student motivation, and parental attitudes towards girls education.
