Matterfund and CEI come together to launch the new Center for Education Innovations

Dear CEI and Matterfund family,

We hope this finds you well in these challenging times. Now more than ever, we need to stay connected to one other to offer support and ideas about how to adapt to our new reality and ensure education continues for learners all over the world.

We are excited to announce that the Center for Education Innovations (CEI) has joined forces with Matterfund to relaunch the CEI website as a central knowledge hub for people like you, working on important education issues.

The new site (which has the same web address: will continue to feature global education innovations, but it also leverages key features from Matterfund’s Hakeema-based platform to provide a stream of resources, ideas, connections and opportunities for all education actors.


The site also includes a special COVID-19 response page that features new initiatives, articles and other resources regarding the global response to this crisis.

The new website is currently in beta and we’re inviting you to explore the site which organizes initiatives by regions and topics. In the future, when the platform is fully launched, you will also be able to contribute content on the site. If you are an innovator whose program is featured on CEI, we will be reaching out to you soon to update your profile. In the meantime, we are also actively looking for partners and collaborators. If you have a global education resource, a program dataset, or initiative that you’d like to make more accessible, please reach out to us via

We hope in these extraordinary times, this platform can help us stay connected.


Daniel Plaut and Nathan Martin, on behalf of the CEI and Matterfund Team
