Education is a foundation for life and a gateway to personal development. However, more than 250 million children and youth are not in school. Among those who do attend school, many fail to reach minimum levels in reading and mathematics due to a poor learning environment. We aim to improve both access to primary schools, as well as the quality of education.
To structurally increase access to education, notably for girls, and improve the quality of the learning environment, we train teachers in our results-based financing approach.
Results-based financing in education
By achieving results to a specific set of indicators, schools focus on improving the quality of education and enhancing good governance. We pay attention to a safe and stimulating learning environment by using educative signs and posters in the playground. Schools are stimulated to use their subsidy for the acquisition of educational materials, to provide drinking water and improve sanitation facilities.
We are confident that by improving the quality of education, the learning outcomes of children will improve as well. We engage with all relevant actors within the education chain and strive for more autonomy and cost-efficiency in educational systems.
