With 263 million children and young people not in school, and 330 million in school but not learning, we have a global learning crisis. We believe, as does Bridge, that a broad coalition between the public and private sector is needed to address this problem. Through their holistic, evidence-based and data-driven model that adapts to local needs of families and governments, Bridge has innovated on everything from teacher training and support to lesson plans to school construction and administration to make learning more effective and as affordable as possible while demonstrating a case for how public private partnership can advance children's learning outcomes.
Bridge is a moonshot that aims to change the future for millions of children in impoverished communities. Supporting public education system transformation at both speed and scale using technology, data and evidence will help create the world we all aspire to live in. Schools should be places where it does not matter what your background is; they should give every child the opportunity to fulfill their potential and build a hopeful future both for themselves and their community.
