Global Education Fund has been providing small grants to organizations based in Guatemala, Kenya and India since around 2011.   While a few of the early grantee partners are no longer supported, GEF tries to stay in touch and keep track of how they have evolved and moved forward.  We do this because we believe having this understanding can offer important lessons and reflections for how we we work now and in the future.  We are also genuinely interested to see how they are doing and in some cases we also like to connect past partners with current partners where there seems potential for mutual learning and sharing.  We measure our own success by seeing our partners move on from us on their chosen route to towards sustainability - whether because they have more diversified sources of funding, a stronger organizational ability to track and measure their program outcomes, the capacity to strengthen and grow their teams and leadership, etc.
