Education is fundamental to all human and economic development – individuals, communities, and nations cannot grow without it. Its cross-cutting influence on health, gender equality, and income generation is especially critical to achieving the Sustainable Development Goals, yet funding for education is inadequate, and donor funding has been stagnating.
SEEK’s work in education has focused on analyses that make the case for greater investment in education both globally and domestically. We evaluate education’s return on investment, appraise programmatic strategies, create donor engagement strategies, conduct financial analysis on both global and domestic financing, and work on the institutional architecture around education.
Clients have included the International Commission on Financing Global Education Opportunity, Oxfam Germany, Norad, Plan International, Bread for the World, and the Global Partnership for Education.
