A $300,000 grant to support the testing, expansion, and government adoption of a skills-based educational programme in Uganda and Rwanda with an innovation curriculum of training, mentorship and clubs.
Commitment to evidence and potential for cost-effective impact. Educate! partnered with Innovations for Poverty Action on the baseline of a randomized controlled trial. Mid-line RCT results show that Educate! graduates earn more than twice as much as their peers soon after they finish the programme. Results from this evaluation will help Educate! make decisions about how to grow and strengthen their program, and will help other donors and governments assess and develop strategies for helping youth thrive.
Track record of growth. Educate! has grown its scale and is now working in 12% (350) of secondary schools in Uganda and reaching over 120,000 students. Educate!’s ten year vision is to reach one million youth annually across ten countries in Africa.Apply for funding
