We use partnership as a vehicle for sustainable education improvement in East Africa.
To do this, we partner with communities to build their capacity to identify, fund, manage, and maintain their own education projects to address immediate needs. At the end of this process, we provide a grant to bring their vision to life. Then, we support them in developing the best ways to continue mobilizing local resources for future projects. Finally, we connect them to a cooperative of local schools and relevant government agencies to continue organizing their resources and advocating for their futures after we leave.
Districts and villages are chosen through careful research on the areas with the most need in the sector of education. Throughout this process, we apply a robust evaluation system to measure the impact of this partnership model on education and social engagement outcomes at the community level.
