Over the past two years, the Center for Education Innovations worked with UNICEF to identify five innovative programs and provide critical support to them for strengthening and scaling up their models. At the same time, we documented their journey, including challenges confronted and conditions that helped lead to success. Insights gained from each program’s journey were synthesized and they have yielded concrete recommendations for implementers (program managers), donors, policymakers and researchers to support innovation. These findings will be shared in the #JourneysToScale report launching on Monday, 10 October.
