I am sent this information and so I am passing it along.  The venture looks interesting:

AidGrade (http://www.aidgrade.org) is a new, research-oriented non-profit. It is using crowdsourcing to compile results of impact evaluations of development programs, showing the different programs’ past effectiveness. Many characteristics of each academic paper are coded up, such as where the study took place, what kinds of methods it used, characteristics of the sample, etc. AidGrade also has a “meta-analysis app” which lets users select papers by these filters and get an instant online meta-analysis of the results.

Hmm. Nice start but I was actually expecting crowdsourcing in the sense that there would be the capacity to submit your own evaluation of a specific assistance project.
