TrustAfrica is the proud recipient of a $1.5 million grant from The William and Flora Hewlett Foundation to support a project entitled "The Learning Innovation Fund." The project will provide small grants and technical assistance to local organizations in four countries to improve literacy and numeracy skills for children during their first four years of primary school.
TrustAfrica, a Pan-African grant making foundation with partners and associates across Africa, and working in partnership with the Hewlett Foundation, is inviting applications for letters of interest (LOIs) to design and implement early learning innovation projects from organizations in Kenya, Uganda, Mali and Senegal. We are seeking organizations with a credible track record in the area of designing and implementing learning innovations, to submit LOIs. At this stage, our "Early Learning Innovations Fund" is at the pilot phase and we are looking at disbursing grants averaging US$55,000 for projects that can be implemented over 12 months, starting from April 2013.
