Join the Network

Become part of our growing network of institutions and individuals who are focused on creating impact across the continent through education. 

Collaborate to propel far-reaching impact across Africa

Engagement in the Education Collaborative is open to both individuals and institutions and is categorized by the level and scope of commitment by the engaged individual or institution. Joining as a member provides varied access to the network’s resources, and funding. The institutional collaborator is backed by an institution, a school, or a department, and will be formally engaged as a representative of/from the institution. Individual contributors are educators, administrators, and other stakeholders in education who have a personal passion for education in Africa and are driven to contribute to developing it.  

Members, both individual and institutional receive:

  • Mentorship and support to institutionalize an innovation mandate.
  • Opportunity to join a Community of Practice (CoP).
  • Access to funding to pilot proof-of-concept of a strategic initiative, and well as frameworks and tools for impact measurement.
  • Recognition for excellence in educational transformation on the African continent.
  • Opportunity to gain recommendation for financial support from world leading organizations.

Engagement is not progressive, and can be at any level based on your need.
