Amaltas has acquired an extensive portfolio of projects and enviable client list since its inception. We have established a global footprint of work which spans India, Cambodia, Indonesia, Philippines, Lao PDR, Thailand, Vietnam, Maldives, Nepal and China among other countries.

Our work has had substantial impact on policy and strategies of organizations and countries. Work the Rural Water Supply and Sanitation program of Cambodia has led to the adoption of an Amaltas-developed monitoring system for progress tracking. Apart from representing the work done by India on HIV and AIDS prevention to the UN General Assembly Special Session, applications written by us have also yielded substantive funding from multilateral donor organizations to the Government of India. Our research and documentation on inclusion of the sexual minorities has found attention from communities in other countries, as well as the National Human Rights Commission of India. Partnership with IDRC has led to greater understanding of the meaning of ‘research excellence’ and is informing the establishment of their systems to measure the quality of research for development funded by them. The M&E framework for the Child Sensitive Social Protection Program developed for Save the Children Finland led to improvement in knowledge management systems and enabled the program staff to capture difficult to assess aspects of the program. The evaluation of the European Union funded project - Sustainable Textiles for Sustainable Development – was designed to assess the project against its stated goals and objectives, thereby yielding lessons for Traidcraft and its partners helping it to secure further funding for poor artisans in Rajasthan.
