Rapid Asia’s vision is to help social development clients to achieve sustainable change, anywhere in the world. Change, whether to change policy or beneficiary behavior, requires evidence. Only clear and convincing evidence can help to push for change or to prove that real change has taken place. The key to our success has been to tackle complex problems by coming up with simple solutions.
Rapid Asia specializes in social research for social development clients and has extensive experience in consulting projects on monitoring and evaluation (M&E), both in terms of innovative design and efficient delivery. To date, Rapid Asia has carried out projects in over 30 countries, spanning all developing continents around the globe including Asia, Africa, Eastern Europe and South/Central America.
Rapid Asia Co., Ltd. was founded in February 2010 and is registered in Thailand. To meet the growing demand for M&E work, Rapid Asia’s core team operates from Bangkok in order to remain in close contact with many of our regional clients based in Thailand, while efficiently coordinating projects globally. Our work centers around solid and proven methodologies, used to carry out baseline and endline studies, KAP surveys, impact assessments, program evaluations and mobile phone panel (m-panel®) applications for monitoring and surveillance.
Rapid Asia has carried out projects in several thematic areas including migration, agriculture, disaster relief, education, human trafficking, climate change, micro finance, health and food security.
Rapid Asia holds membership with ESOMAR, the essential organization for encouraging, advancing and elevating social research worldwide. Rapid Asia follows and enforces the ESOMAR International Code on professional conduct and data quality procedures with all sub-contractors.
