We believe passionately that sustainable, long-term change on the world’s stickiest development issues needs to come from the grassroots. We work on the ground to ensure your investment decisions are based around real lives and needs, looking to understand people, not just problems.

We design every project to best fit the brief, drawing on our qualitative research tools including face to face, digital research, stakeholder collaboration, workshops and many other methodologies.  We also deliver mixed methodology projects working alongside our associate specialists in quant, semiotics and ethnography.  

Please contact us directly at hello@humankind-research.com to discuss further; whether you have a written brief or just have an idea for a project, we can help.


Through exploratory work with beneficiaries and interviews with NGOs, we help Foundations and philanthropists define the principles of the types of organisations they fund, for more streamlined and coherent giving.


If you're struggling to identify grantees and get money out the door, we can help. We use a range of immersive methodologies and draw on our experience with hard to reach groups to help grant-giving Trusts identify beneficiaries and craft messages to connect with them.


Sometimes you need more than numbers to illustrate impact. We vividly bring to life your potential beneficiaries for stakeholder audiences, using pen portraits and beautiful illustrations as well as video footage captured in field.
