for grants to innovative programs that improve children’s learning in Africa (Phase II)
This grant will support Phase II of TrustAfrica’s Early Learning Innovations Fund, which sought to identify local organizations with effective approaches for improving learning and provide them financial and technical support to demonstrate and document their impact. Under Phase II, TrustAfrica will continue its support for the most promising innovations from Phase I. TrustAfrica will assist these organizations in telling their story and will connect them to existing regional and country-level education networks and local decision makers to facilitate uptake and support from government and from other donors.
