The Hewlett Foundation announced a pledge of $18.5 million to the Global Partnership for Education’s 2015-18 replenishment today. The pledge, which will be fulfilled through the Foundation’s grantmaking and technical support to civil society organizations and other key actors in global education, will support capacity building for better systems for learning assessment and the use of assessment data to inform planning and improve learning outcomes. It will also support civil society organizations that are using citizen-led, household assessments of learning to raise awareness about children’s learning status and to motivate action at the national, sub-national and community level for improved learning.
