Putting people first
in humanitarian operations
Ground Truth Solutions
Our mission is to ensure that people affected by crisis have a say in humanitarian action, from individual projects to global humanitarian reform. Our current strategy lays out how we want to achieve this.
We help people affected by crisis to influence:
ProjectCommunity perceptions in Uganda
In Uganda, we are talking to South Sudanese and Congolese community leaders in refugee settlements across 10 regions, to capture their insight on communities’ information access, behaviours, trust and the economic impact of COVID-19.
ProjectThe Cash Barometer in Nigeria
We launched in Nigeria in late 2019 with a survey of recipients of CVA in Borno State. Following the COVID-19 pandemic, we adapted the Cash Barometer to explore perceptions of the economic impact of the pandemic, as experienced by CVA recipients, humanitarian actors and financial service providers. A second round of surveys in Borno, Adamawa and Yobe (BAY states) was conducted in November 2020.
OpinionPartners not participants: reflections on capacity-strengthening projects in Afghanistan
countering inherent power imbalances in capacity-strengthening will require a significant shift in how we view the capabilities and needs of Afghan NGOs
ProjectSystematic feedback from Rohingya and host communities in Bangladesh
We are providing Rohingya communities in Bangladesh with a way to give systematic feedback to aid providers. To make sure that the views of affected communities inform humanitarian programming, we combine these efforts with training for aid providers.
ProjectMapping the user journeys of Syrian refugees receiving multi-purpose cash in Lebanon
In collaboration with CAMEALEON and WFP, Ground Truth Solutions explored the lived experiences or “user journeys” of Syrian receiving multi-purpose cash (MPC) assistance from the World Food Programme (WFP) in Lebanon.
ProjectAn accountable humanitarian response in Chad
Since 2018, we have been tracking the perceptions of people affected by crisis in the Lac, Ouaddaï and Logone Oriental provinces to highlight their opinions about the humanitarian aid they receive. We have also interviewed humanitarian staff and their local partners.
