We focus on basic education in the Global South, from early childhood up to secondary, formal and non-formal, youth skills and adult literacy. Much of our work contributes to achieving Sustainable Development Goal 4 and we aim for foundations’ grant-making, convening, and collaborating activities to have a marked positive impact on global basic education.
We are diverse – with over 100 member organizations from wide geographic, thematic and political angles. As such, we do not do advocacy, nor pitch or fund projects; but rather focus on ensuring our members keep up with developments and best practices in the field, better identifying our role in catalysing change in the short- and long-term, and in creating opportunities for members to network and learn from each other.
