As a family foundation, we’re agile enough to fund and invest in programs and organizations where an assumed risk may prevent other donors participating.
We’re passionate about strengthening the global education system via an all-hands-on-deck approach, giving children in all settings access to quality education. As an international team with a long-standing presence in Ghana, we’re focused on thinking outside-the-box on the issues impacting learning outcomes in low to lower-middle income countries.
Our focus is two-fold. Firstly, for the mixed economy of education provision – and the contribution of non-state actors – to be recognized and integrated into national education discourse, so that all providers receive tailored support. Secondly, we focus on actively funding organizations who support low-fee private schools today, while telling the story of their organic nature by empowering the voice of local actors and beneficiaries.
We believe in the power of partnerships to achieve our mission. Our aim is to support sustainable community-built education provision, as part of an affordable non-state sector (ANS) that complements public education systems and is governed within a central framework. We’re guided by the principle that the best way forward is to empower local actors to create change.
