Hi Rashmi and all, 

Attached is a toolkit that Sharon Brisolara developed for USAID in 2014.  Some of it is specific to USAID's operational requirements, but much of it might be helpful for other organizations as well.  




Thank you so much Christine for such a prompt reply.

All are requested to share for learning of all

3. I was part of IDS team which facilitated Participatory Statistics to Examine the Impact of Interventions to Eradicate Slavery: Lessons from the Field’. This was for a project funded by Freedom Fund in two states of India - Bihar and UP. The study was with 14 NGO partners of Geneva Global. 

Oosterhoff, P., Bharadwaj, S., Burns, D., Raj, A.M., Nanda, R.B. and Narayanan, P.
CDI Practice Paper 16
Publisher IDS

This CDI Practice Paper by Pauline Oosterhoff, Sowmyaa Bharadwaj, Danny Burns, Aruna Mohan Raj, Rituu B. Nanda and Pradeep Narayanan reflects on the use of participatory statistics to assess the impact of interventions to eradicate slavery and bonded labour.

It deals with:

  1. the challenges of estimating changes in the magnitude of various forms of slavery;
  2. the potential of combining participatory approaches with statistical principles to generate robust data for assessing impact of slavery eradication; and 
  3. the practical and ethical questions in relation to working with people living within a context of modern slavery. 

The paper draws lessons from the realities of using participatory statistics to support the evaluation of a slavery eradication programme in North India.

 The publication has been uploaded to the IDS website and can be found using the following link:
