A very fast-paced organization with staff from different cultures. Even at that, they were able to contextualize the learning study we planned for our grantees. We like the fact that they delivered the learning study on time for the development of our strategy. Additionally, their team played a great role in orchestrating our new strategy.

Vice President, Africa at Luminate.

This was the most intense technical assistance we have ever received in our Ministry. At every point, support was provided to the Ministry staff. We are grateful to Cloneshouse for the value we got from the technical support—from planning data collection to reporting findings. I also like the fact that all our organization’s queries were responded to in a timely manner, even after the contract ended.

I got more value for my money than the expensive training I had gone for in other African countries. For example, the way you simplified creating logical frameworks was outstanding. In this other African country, they made it complicated.
