Why We Invested

Data and testimony from partner municipalities point to the success of ICEP in equipping school leaders and teachers with skills and mindsets they need to support students, and also children’s learning outcomes. We are inspired by ICEP’s community-led model, which is built around teachers, local leaders, community actors, learners and others. Working with the local community, in a participatory approach, ICEP helps integrate civil life into the school curriculum, effectively contributing to student engagement and learning.

It is possible, in a classroom, a school, a village, a municipality, a state or a country, for educators, the community and managers to transform— forever—the quality of education. It's possible!
