Carfax was engaged by an international NGO to conduct a detailed feasibility study examining the potential for an internationally accredited school and examination centre, allowing pupils in Mogadishu to access recognised qualifications. Carfax was subsequently engaged to broker with international examination boards to support the implementation of the recommendations made within the feasibility study report.
An international NGO engaged Carfax to conduct a detailed analysis of fincancing mechanisms for education within humanitarian contexts. The study included detailed and complex data analysis from a range of sources, including the UN-led humanitarian responses, OECD financial reports, the Red Cross, and many others. Carfax's activities for this project comprised primary qualitative and quantitative research (including methodology and research tool design and execution), literature review, correspondence with and management of key stakeholders, and drafting of final recommendations based on the results of analyses.
