ABOUT US

The Institute of Social Research and Development (ISRAD) was legally established in 2018 (See Regulations in a separate attachment) with humble beginnings in The Gambia. With little more to show than a determination to achieve significant results, the institute has since become an important player in development consulting services. ISRAD offers a range of technical advisory services to multilateral, bilateral, governmental and nongovernmental organizations based both in The Gambia and West Africa Sub-region. The institute addresses social and economic constraints while seeking opportunities for poverty reduction and sustainable development. It has crafted a reputation for itself, thanks to its expert knowledge and ability to successfully accomplish assignments in the sectors of agriculture, education, health, economic growth, institutional support and governance. The institute provides its clients with tailored consulting advice and appropriate approaches drawn from our extensive knowledge of The Gambian context. It adapts these practices to the scenarios in the context, working closely with the local populations to achieve results. ISRAD has developed its in-house capacity over the years and has created a network of experts dedicated to providing quality services.
