Faith to Action Network promotes research and demonstration projects that generate evidence.

Evidence on faith-based interventions on family health and wellbeing, gender equality and women’s rights and pluralism is fragmentary. Such evidence is needed to convince faith institutions to take greater action.

Faith to Action Network collects and analyses data for learning and decision making, well as action research on specific questions to generate actionable information.
