First, a landscape analysis was conducted to better understand what kinds of programs exist in the ecosystem. Through in-depth desk research and drawing on existing resources such as the Center for Education Innovations and Ashoka Changemakers, key programs and actors that play a role at the secondary and tertiary level in Africa were identified.
Second, a deeper analysis into four critical areas was conducted, namely:
- - Post-Conflict and Crisis Programs
- - Gender Focused Initiatives
- - Networking & Collaborative Learning Programs
- - Skills Development Programs
The deep-dive analysis takes an in-depth look at trends and key factors in each of these four areas, and uses case studies to illustrate how programs are responding to specific challenges within these critical areas.
