Market Research: Desta’s trained and equipped Village Managers have the tools necessary to conduct market research and provide monitoring and evaluation at the village level on behalf of organization and government agencies. For example if an organization wants to collect data about people living in a Desta serviced area the organization can send the survey to Desta. Desta will sent it to its network of Village Managers, who can survey a sample and return back results to Desta and the organization in a very short time period.
Non-profit Support: Many non-profits are focused on very small geographies. Their expertise and knowledge create a very small impact. Desta provides a unique platform to these non-profits to quickly expand their outreach and multiply their impact. For example an organization that promotes innovative agriculture practices can work with Desta and through the help of its Village Managers, promote these agriculture practices and provide training and follow up services.
