Back in 2017, IDP Foundation, Inc. became a founding partner of the Harambe Entrepreneur Alliance in order to find a way to effectively support the many social enterprises that are working towards hard to tackle global issues.
Strong partnerships and collaborating with effective organizations are key components to tackling the complex global issues that we seek to improve at the IDP Foundation, Inc. (IDPF).
While most of our grantmaking is done to support our keystone program, the IDP Rising Schools Program, and to promote advocacy efforts in global education, we also fund locally based organizations that share our same belief that education is a key component to conquering many of the world’s greatest challenges.
The IDP Foundation, Inc. has always practiced grantmaking with purpose.
An integral portion of the TFET program are the in-person trainings that consist of a two-tier “train the trainer” model in which a group of “master teachers” completes the first tier of training and then replicates the experience to their fellow teachers at their schools.
In the opening of a video entitled Practical Ways to Make the Classroom Creative and Fun, “Sesame Street” Muppets Zobi and Kami are playing a new song for their favorite teacher, Ms. Efia, slapping out the rhythm on a drum.
Congratulations to IDPF President & CEO, Irene D. Pritzker, for receiving the Australia US Midwest Award for Outstanding Achievement!
IDP Foundation, Inc. (IDPF) and our partners at Sesame Workshop, with the help of researchers from NORC at the University of Chicago, had the opportunity to present the Techniques for Effective Teaching (TFET) program at the 2018 mEducation Alliance Symposium on November 6 in Washington DC.
