We provide a full range of management consulting, technical assistance, and training services to strengthen international development programs, organizations, and policies. We provide services globally in the areas of monitoring and evaluation, strategic planning, project and program design, organizational capacity building, and gender and social analysis.

Project Objective:
Social Impact launched the USAID Bureau for Food Security Service Center (FSSC) in October 2013. The $26 million award by USAID provides a broad range of integrated and knowledge-driven technical services to support President Obama’s $3.5 billion Feed the Future initiative to combat hunger, reduce poverty and forge long-term solutions to chronic food insecurity and under nutrition. Drawing upon resources and expertise of agencies across the US Government, this Presidential Initiative helps countries transform their own agriculture sectors to grow enough food to feed their people. The Food Security Service Center will provide advisory services through the recruitment, mobilization and deployment of state-of-the-art expert consultants and volunteers to 19 target countries in Latin America, Caribbean, Africa, Asia and other priority countries. Based on their findings, the USAID Bureau for Food Security will recommend further investments to bring projects to scale or to replicate in other areas. The contract will enable USAID Bureau for Food Security to provide short and longer-term expertise for state-of-the-art food security support services and analyses; capacity building; and expert analysis and integration of cross-cutting issues that are critical to the success of FTF and also provide a mechanism for bridge programming and pilot innovations.
