A grant to TrustAfrica would help the organization manage a regional program of small grants to stimulate and support innovation in basic education. TrustAfrica would work in Uganda, Kenya, Mali, and Senegal to help develop an education system capable of producing the critical skills of entrepreneurship, inventiveness, and risk taking that Africa needs for development. The new grant would apply to basic education, TrustAfrica’s approach of meetings, technical assistance, and grantmaking that is currently used for higher education.

for general operating support
TrustAfrica is a pan-African foundation that supports diverse civil society organizations to advance systemic change in the areas of equitable development, democracy and governance, and African philanthropy. It was established in 2006 as a vehicle to mobilize resources required to support African agency in setting priorities and championing responses to the most pressing issues facing the continent. Over the next two years, TrustAfrica will pursue program development and consolidation as well as organizational development and strengthening to build on the organization’s strategic plan.

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.
