Call for Proposals in East, West, and Southern Africa: Generating and Mobilizing Knowledge and Innovation for Early Learning
Call for Proposals
The Knowledge and Innovation Exchange (KIX) is a joint endeavour of the International Development Research Centre (IDRC) and the Global Partnership for Education (GPE) to strengthen the national education systems of GPE member countries.
The IDRC, the GPE and the LEGO Foundation invite proposals from individual organizations or consortia of multiple organizations, for projects to generate and mobilize knowledge so national education systems in developing countries can address challenges associated with the achievement of the SDG Target 4.1 “ensure that all girls and boys complete free, equitable and quality primary and secondary education leading to relevant and effective learning outcomes" and 4.2 “to ensure that all boys and girls have access to early childhood development, care and pre-primary education so that they are ready for primary education”.
This call will prioritize funding to Southern organizations. Applications must be submitted by nationally/internationally registered or incorporated organizations in Africa. Given that KIX supports inter-country knowledge sharing and exchange, each project funded through this call is expected to work in two or more GPE member countries in the region, facilitating learning within and across the countries involved.
KIX will allocate CA$5 million through this call, with individual projects receiving funding between CA$700,000 and CA$1 million. Projects can be up to 22 months in duration.
To complete an online application, select ‘Apply’. In case of the proposals involving multiple organizations, the lead organization should submit a single application on behalf of those involved.
