Amaltas has accumulated an extensive portfolio of projects and enviable client list of since it began in December 2006. Our assignments are completed to high quality and on time. We have established a global footprint of work which spans India, Bangladesh, Cambodia, China, Maldives, Myanmar, Nepal, Indonesia, Pakistan, Philippines, Lao PDR, Thailand, Vietnam and China among other countries.

Our work is able to have substantial impact on policy and strategies of organizations and countries. Our multiple projects to evaluate the portfolio supported by IDRC Canada, led to an invitation to support the development of a portfolio quality tracking tool by IDRC. Work for BMGF on several projects has helped shape the direction of their portfolio in India. Evaluation of the work funded by ADB, European Union and Unicef has helped to correct the course of their work. Management advisory projects for donors such as IDRC and BMGF have helped these organizations reorient their management priorities. An 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 Sustainable Textiles for Sustainable Development was designed to yield lessons for Traidcraft and its partners helping it to secure further funding for poor artisans in Rajasthan. Our advice has shaped large government and non government programs, improving the lives of people in India and other low and middle income countries. An Amaltas-developed monitoring system for progress tracking has been adopted by the Rural Water Supply and Sanitation program of Cambodia. 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.
