Through the MELS activity, EnCompass and its partners are supporting the USAID Mission in Peru, including its bilateral and South America Regional portfolio, USAID/Brazil, USAID/Ecuador, and USAID/Paraguay. Working from a project office in Lima, Peru, our team helps ensure local practitioners use evidence to design and implement effective and sustainable development programs.

EnCompass leads this 5-year contract with support from All In for Development. Together, this team supports planning, design, implementation, dissemination, and learning from monitoring and evaluation activities. The MELS team also provides technical assistance and capacity strengthening for USAID staff, local implementing partners, and the Peruvian government, bolstering their efforts to achieve sustainable development outcomes.
