While the collection of monitoring data allows us to track the breadth of our impact, the Freedom Fund is committed to understanding why some interventions work better than others, and measuring how these results contribute to an overall reduction in slavery. To this end, we commission research institutions to conduct rigorous, mixed method, controlled studies of our programs, and to provide independent assessments of our hotspots. Studies currently underway are listed below. Click here to read about our approach to monitoring and evaluation.
