Strategic Impact

Don't Just Do Good. Do Good, Better.

 FRAMEWORK: BRIDGING PRACTICE AND POLICY FOR MAXIMUM IMPACT

FRAMEWORK: BRIDGING PRACTICE AND POLICY FOR MAXIMUM IMPACT

Grassroots organizations are busy doing good. But good intentions are not good enough.

We must also implement best practice from policy actors and academia. At the same time, macro-level influencers must be informed by the expertise gained only by working on the ground.

These are two worlds that need each other, but don't know how to talk or hear one another. Freedom Resource International bridges the worlds of theory, policy, and practice to produce better NGO programming and targeted advocacy, so that the entire movement has greater impact.

RESEARCH AND
EVIDENCE-BASED
PRACTICE

It's not enough to just train organizations in current best practices. We must constantly evaluate effectiveness and innovate next-generation solutions based on research and evidence-based practice. Our research partnerships bridge grassroots practitioners who are the best sources of knowledge on the field with academics and policy makers who are masters of macro-level wisdom to better the response at both levels. 

 

THINK TANKS / 
SYMPOSIA

Good ideas come about when great thinkers come together. We gather thought leaders (practitioners, academics, and policy makers) together in person and online to analyze problems and envision new solutions for greater effectiveness.

 

ADVOCACY AND
STRATEGIC
COMMUNICATIONS

Real-world complexities and effective solutions must be shared in words that each world understands. We create academic journals, practitioner briefings, and other resources to communicate knowledge between the grassroots and the policy/academic communities.
