Equitable Education for Everyone

What We Do

We work to facilitate effective change with education stakeholders in low- and middle-income countries. Equity and evidence are at the heart of our approach. We use ‘open’ (content, access, software, standards) to achieve scalability and sustainability, and we use agile and adaptive management, driven by a Theory of Change. Drawing on technology where it offers the best value proposition, we specialise in the following areas.

Rigorous education research

Efficient education programme implementation

Effective education strategy and management

Technology in education
