For Supporting Local NGOs To Grow And Innovate On The TaRL Approach In Africa

Overview
Teaching at the Right Level (TaRL) is a pedagogical approach that involves evaluating children using a simple assessment tool, and then grouping them according to learning level rather than age or grade. The Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and its partner Pratham have extensively evaluated this approach, showing that it substantially raises reading and math learning outcomes. With this grant, J-PAL and Pratham will launch a competitive implementation funding window for local African NGOs. These NGOs will develop and expand locally grounded approaches to TaRL, share innovations with and learn from the TaRL Africa Community of Practice, and support governments considering implementing TaRL.

for MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative's climate change mitigation and sustainability work  
The MIT Sloan Sustainability Initiative aims to limit global warming emissions to protect the planet from the worst effects of human-induced climate change, and promote human prosperity and health around the world. One leverage point in reducing emissions is the re-allocation of capital. This work will provide information on financial institution carbon intensity that would be relevant to organizations in the United States; it will inform the following decisions: choice of investment targets for capital, choice of insurance companies for a range of business insurance services, choice of banks, and choice of investment options for employees in 401(k) retirement plans.
