About us

Building capacity in program implementation and research across all sectors

At the Agency for Scientific Research and Training (ASRT), we provide services in three main pillars: Program Implementation, Capacity Building and Research.

To provide access to knowledge through applied research, build capacity through professional training and support effective program implementation.

ASRT embraces a sustainable ‘third way’

We are also committed to supporting our community by volunteering, doing charitable work, and providing training scholarships, skills building for the youth in employment preparedness. 

We place special emphasis on youth development and empowerment, supporting both self-employment and formal engagement.

A large part of our income is reinvested into our philanthropic work and supporting national development. This ‘third way’ is the sustainable way – come along, join us.

Our Core Values

Teamwork. Equity. Efficiency. Evidence-Based Decision Making.
