Technical Support for Education Innovations
The PSIPSE is a funder collaborative that seeks to both increase access to formal and non-formal secondary education and improve learning outcomes for marginalized populations. The PSIPSE contributes to this goal through funding in-country interventions that accelerate innovation, contribute to evidence-based policy reforms, and engage with and disseminate learnings to key stakeholders.
