Be the change.

ABOUT Jessica

I completed my undergraduate and Honours degrees at UCT in Psychology, and a Master's degree in Programme Evaluation. Since finishing my studies, I have worked as a Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning consultant in the local NGO sector, with a focus on psychosocial development among at-risk youth. I use social science research methods and statistics to determine the impact and social change attributable to these interventions. Every day is a new and fascinating challenge!

Alacrity Development (Pty) Ltd was formed in 2016 by five alumni from the University of Cape Town and the University of London in response to a lack of high quality research, evaluation, organisational development, and public health services in South Africa. We integrate best-practice methods and procedures from across the social sciences, management sciences, statistics, public health and IT, to conduct research and evaluation in developing contexts. We strive to develop learning systems that are designed and implemented in collaboration with our clients, so that these systems are tailored to the needs of organisations, and the communities that they serve.
