Work

Research /

Weave supports ‘research with a purpose’ – harnessing wisdom and ideas for transformative change. Helping you sharpen the research focus and purpose is often the first step. From there we access relevant knowledge (local, global, indigenous, western), and present findings in compelling and powerful ways.

Examples:

Evaluation /

Weave provides evaluation support for insight, to achieve greater impact and to support transformation. We will work with you to identify your evaluation needs and how to get them met within your budget. We also support self-assessment and provide mentoring, coaching and capacity building around evaluation.
