What We Do
- WHERE WE WORK
Welcome Message from Carol Jenkins
For more than 90 years, World Learning has equipped individuals and institutions to address the world’s most pressing problems. We believe that, working together with our partners, we can change this world for the better.
On my travels, I’ve had the opportunity to meet with many of those who have joined us in this mission. In Baghdad, we’ve trained more than 2,300 Iraqi youth who are already giving back at home. In London, our partners in the TAAP Initiative strongly believe that we are all responsible to practice inclusion. And in Vermont, our Experiment in International Living and School for International Training participants prove every day that they have the tools and the determination to change the world.
Please join us in our pursuit of a more peaceful and just world.

What We Do > Our Approach
Monitoring, Evaluation, Research, and Learning
World Learning’s Monitoring, Evaluation, Research, and Learning (MERL) team excels in conducting advanced and innovative approaches to monitoring and evaluation.
Because we understand that program design and implementation is a complex undertaking that takes place in complex environments, our team always uses a systematic process to capture, analyze, and share programmatic data.
Our tailored approach relies upon close collaboration and effective communication to address all stakeholder needs so that we ensure our work is highly effective and impactful.
We have extensive experience in designing evaluation frameworks under USAID and other donor-funded programs and have a vanguard approach to assessing the success of new educational programs.
Examples of World Learning’s MERL capabilities include:
- Developing and running the monitoring and evaluation systems for the USAID Transforming Higher Educations Systems program in Malawi, a multiyear initiative involving several university and private sector partners
- Specializing in the use of the MODE Framework developed by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs
- Implementing a randomized control trial to determine the effectiveness of a new high-school economics curriculum for the USAID Youth Employment Skills program in Uzbekistan, the first time such an approach has been used for a USAID-funded initiative
