”… it is clear that education will play a critical dual role of addressing poverty and inequality while supporting the transition to a new model of sustainable development. For this to occur, all stakeholders, from civil society and non-government organizations … to multilateral organizations, bilateral aid agencies and all levels of government, will need to make concerted efforts to reorient systems of education, skills development, and research and innovation.” – UNESCO
Sattva collaborated with AVPN to produce ‘Funding Education with Impact: A Guide for Social Investment in India’, a deep dive into the social investment landscape in education in India.
Designed as a practical guide for funders and other stakeholders within the education sector in India, this report was launched at the AVPN India Summit 2017, held at IIT Bombay, Mumbai on the 14 September 2017.
The report has been designed as a guide for potential and existing social investors who would like to maximise impact in the education sector. It analyses gaps, desired outcomes and existing interventions by various social purpose organisations across the education segments – early childhood, primary, secondary, vocational and inclusive education. An overview of the current funding landscape, along with notable funding examples across the spectrum of funders, is also provided. Finally, the guide discusses ecosystem initiatives to identify potential synergies for funders.
We hope this report serves as a comprehensive and practical guide for anyone interested in, and involved in, any stage of education in India.
