Thematic Member Forum – Education in Kenya

June, 2021 @ 9:00 am - 11:30 am EAT

Education is a major priority focus area for corporate and private giving. It is also a major pillar for the Sustainable Development Goals (SDG 4) and Kenya’s Vision 2030. The crises sparked by the COVID-19 pandemic revealed systemic gaps in the provision of quality education, and further entrenched existing inequalities globally and across Kenya.

In this virtual forum, invited experts will share insights on Kenya’s progress against the education sector’s targets, as part of the country’s overall development agenda. Forum members and guests will engage on key issues in the sector: How can the philanthropy sector complement governments efforts in the education sector? How can we build long term sustainability into education investments? What are the barriers to meeting education targets under the SDGs? How might philanthropy actors intervene strategically in the sector, and create maximum impact rates of return? Which best practices and innovations are emerging in the education sector? and much more.

This kick off discussion on education will contribute towards informing Impact Philanthropy Africa’s agenda on education . It will also inform how Forum members can collectively engage with the government and other education stakeholders through concrete mechanisms moving forward.
