Grants to this Grantee
for education data-driven decision mapping research in East and West Africa  
Development Gateway: an IREX Venture (DG) is an international nonprofit organization with team members in more than 10 countries worldwide. DG conducts research on data ecosystems, builds digital tools to support those ecosystems, improves data interoperability and analytics, and advises on data strategy and digital transformation to strengthen decision making, transparency, and service delivery. IREX is a global development and education organization dedicated to building a more just, prosperous, and inclusive world by empowering youth, cultivating leaders, strengthening institutions, and extending access to quality education and information. Through this grant, DG, together with education sector experts from IREX, will map the education data and decision ecosystems in Kenya and Senegal, focusing on primary and secondary education, to more holistically understand the barriers to more effective data sharing, interoperability, and ultimate use. By understanding the barriers to data use, this program will allow for more targeted interventions for creating robust education data ecosystems for better learning outcomes.
