The Partnership to Strengthen Innovation and Practice in Secondary Education (PSIPSE) – a collaboration of donors led by the MasterCard Foundation, has announced a Call for Proposals to improve the quality of secondary education in Kenya, Uganda, Tanzania and Malawi.
To ensure the relevance of this Call for Proposals to governments, PSIPSE seeks to target its support to areas of priority for the public education sector. To this end, PSIPSE collaborated with the African Institute for Development Policy (AFIDEP) in Kenya to examine areas of priority for governments in each of the four countries targeted in the Request for Proposals (RFP) to improve the educational outcomes for marginalised populations.
PSIPSE seeks to improve the educational outcomes for marginalised populations in developing countries, particularly in Africa. The partnership supports the development and testing of innovative models to address challenges in secondary education.
It promotes efforts to find local solutions to problems and generate evidence of effective strategies. Besides grant-making, PSIPSE contributes to secondary education through learning and influencing activities. It places a strong emphasis on continuous learning and strives to inform and contribute to system-level change in secondary education.
Since 2012, PSIPSE has built a portfolio of 59 projects in eight countries in Africa and Asia, hence contributing $50 million to the sector. PSIPSE seeks to support projects through different stages of implementation. In addition to innovations, PSIPSE has facilitated and supported the scale-up of effective interventions in its target countries.
Applicants must register at Register by November 21, 2016 to be eligible to submit a proposal.
