Over the past month, Khulisa’s evaluation team members Senior Associate, Jhon Lugo Pinto, Associate, Erin Nealer and Senior Security Advisor Eric Scheye held meetings with 22 grant recipients of the U.S. State Department’s Central America Regional Security (CARSI) Small Grants Program (SGP).


The program, which advances community-based crime and gang prevention and economic and social programming for at-risk youth and communities disproportionately affected by crime, is being implemented in the three countries of Belize, Costa Rica and Panama since 2012.


Khulisa was awarded the evaluation of the CARSI SGP for the US Department of State in September 2018. We will conduct an 18-month evaluation, concluding by February 2020.


Here is the team with two of Belize’s recipient organizations: PathLight International and YWCA Belize – Young Women’s Christian Association Belize.

    I am very happy to hear and be part of this success. CRSI SGP is an innovative and timely issue for a number of countries and communities. If Khulisa succeed in documenting the program sustaining results, the learning part will have double advantage. First, countries other than grantees will learn a lot to scale up to huge number of communities to save young lives. Second, Khulisa will be able to secure huge market opportunities. Accordingly I congradulate all involved and worked hard to this oppotunity to happen.

  2. Aw, this was a very good post. Finding the time and actual effort to produce a great article… but what can I say… I procrastinate a whole lot and never manage to get nearly anything done.
