About us

Championing the values of intersectional feminist research, Bodhi is committed to the mission of rebalancing power dynamics across knowledge production and humanitarian interventions within and beyond the development sector. As such, we approach each project by first seeking to understand contextual settings (always through mediation of local knowledge) and build situated methodologies that seek to challenge existing power dynamics.

Our Story

Bodhi Global Analysis was born out of a recognition that effective development programming required compelling evidence, and that there was a need for objective dispassionate research that went beyond pushing agendas, ticking boxes or fitting within preconceived frameworks. Thus, with the aim of injecting academic rigour into the research informing development policy and practice, Bodhi Global Analysis Ltd was incorporated in London in August 2017, followed by the establishment of a subsidiary in Nairobi in 2018.

Meet the team.

We are a growing team of global experts, based predominantly in Kenya and the UK with national consultants in countries including Ethiopia, Iraq, Somalia and Tanzania. Our particular focus is on producing highly specific PEA and conflict analysis of cities, sectors, and issues and rural and urban contexts. We have significant expertise in gender and inclusion, localisation and triple-nexus programming.
