About Laterite

At Laterite, we transform the way development research is done. Our mission is to deploy the most innovative research methods and the latest academic thinking to design effective responses to development issues. We provide three types of services to clients: i) comprehensive data collection and data processing solutions; ii) research services, from the design of large scale research projects through to analysis; and iii) strategic and technical advice to public and private sector clients.

Laterite currently operates in Rwanda and Ethiopia and we are in the process of expanding our network of offices. Our Rwanda office brings together more than 20 full time local and international staff, who work with a team of over 300 enumerators. In the last few years in Rwanda, we have successfully completed over 50 projects, working with internationally recognized universities, global think tanks, international NGOs, multilateral donor organizations and several Government ministries and agencies.
