We are supporting cutting-edge education innovations
that are ready to scale in emergencies

Department for International Development (DFID), the United Nations Children's Fund (UNICEF) and the United Nations High Commissioner for Refugees (UNHCR) have partnered to form the first Humanitarian Education Accelerator. The initiative will help us understand how to transform good pilot projects into scalable educational initiatives for refugees and displaced communities worldwide.

By developing a cohort of successful humanitarian innovators, we hope to build a strong evidence base of effective methods to scale and evaluate programs for refugee education. 

Selected candidates benefit from:

- Tailored mentorship on the scaling process and on evaluation;
- Annual bootcamps to build organizational capacity and enable peer-support;
- A fully-funded external evaluation and;
- Up to £300’000 to strengthen evaluation capacity within your organisation.


Our teams will continously update us on their journey as they scale their projects. Please have a look at our blog space!
