£10 Million ‘Innovation for Education’ set for December

Share it

The UK Department for International Development (DFID) has announced a partnership with the Rwanda government dubbed “Innovation for Education (IFE).”

A minimum of £50,000 and a maximum sum of £800,000 will be offered to participating organizations, as per Marc Van der Stouwe, the head of the IFE.

£10 million in total has been earmarked for the project, which is projected to get underway by December this year, and run for at least two years.

Non Governmental Organizations (NGOs), faith-based organizations, private sector projects, foundations, and consortia are all encouraged to apply for funding — however the number of recipient organizations is limited so competition will be intense, and an extensive vetting process to boot.

Applicants will be screened by four criteria. Projects need to be innovative, easily replicable by the government, cost-effective, and make long-lasting improvements to the quality of education in the region.

The IFE project represents just a fraction of the DFID’s efforts in Rwanda. In total, the UK government spends £83 million each year in Rwanda.
