About Innovations for Poverty Action: Innovation for Poverty Action is a non-profit organization dedicated to discovering and promoting effective solutions to global poverty problems.
In close partnership with decision makers — the policymakers, practitioners, investors, and donors working with the poor around the world — IPA designs and evaluates potential solutions to poverty problems using randomized evaluations, the most rigorous evaluation method available.
We also mobilize and support these decision makers to use these solutions to build better programs and policies at scale.
IPA Kenya is our longest standing office and has hosted many of our foundational studies, leading to a robust body of local evidence. IPA Kenya grew out of original work done by International Child Support and increased demand by researchers for strong, local field research management.
Now, the Kenya team is leading engagement with decision-makers through official partnerships, such as with the Kenyan Government’s Vision 2030 program, established to share and build policy-relevant evidence, as well as with other key stakeholders in various sectors.
