What We Believe

The world’s future depends on improved learning outcomes for underserved children

Education is the key to eradicating intergenerational poverty, however, the lack of access to quality education in developing countries has resulted in millions of children either being out of school or not learning. As a funding partner and champion of the affordable non-state education sector (ANS), we believe that a mixed economy of provision is the solution to struggling public systems in lower-middle and low-income countries.

Our Theory of Change

Improving education for all children, now

We believe in empowering local actors who support low-fee private schools with access to finance and training in underserved communities

Positioning the ANS to deliver better outcomes for all

We are committed to identifying and funding local and global actors driven to improve learning outcomes in low to no-connectivity settings

Championing a mixed economy of education provision

We focus on collaboration and partnerships with peers, advocates, practitioners, and governments
