Innovation for Education, launching on 4 September 2012, will offer the opportunity for Rwanda to test new ideas that demonstrate effective and equitable ways of improving childrenâ€™s learning. Civil society and the private sector will be supported to pilot innovative projects with the potential to be adopted by the Government of Rwanda and implemented on a nation-wide scale.
Projects will focus on improving the quality of education within one or more of six thematic areas:Â accountability and empowerment; inclusive education; climate change and environment; effective teaching and learning; skills development; and use of appropriate technologies in education.
The call for Expressions of Interest opens on 4 September 2012, with a closing date of Wednesday 19 September 2012. Projects will begin from December 2012 and will be supported for just over two years.
