The Reach Project focuses on the delivery of development interventions to those who need them most. We are a research initiative based in the Munk School of Global Affairs and Public Policy at the University of Toronto. Our team is led by Joseph Wong and supported by the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth. The Reach Project team is composed of researchers from across the University of Toronto. Together, we examine the delivery of social services to those who are hardest to reach.
