Our Approach

In 2014 GEF developed and began to implement a new approach to support and work with its partners on the ground - including identifying new partners led by what we began to refer to as Education Entrepreneurs. 

We are now over 2 years into implementing the revised strategy of working with Education Entrepreneurs and their organizations.  We are seeing promising results with our multi-year funding and engagement — including the development of growth and sustainability plans for their future.  There are also changes in how our partners are monitoring the impact of their work on the thousands of kids involved in and benefitting from their programs across Guatemala, India and Kenya. Their commitment and dedication to improving the girls and boys lives through education is becoming more evident each year.

This video highlights how and why our strategy works. Enjoy!
