Big Win Philanthropy has a number of new programs that have been approved by its board and are being developed.
Results-based funding for education in Africa
Big Win Philanthropy is supporting the start-up phase of a proposed new $1bn Education Outcomes Fund being established by the Education Commission, the Global Business Coalition for Education and the Global Steering Group for Impact Investment. The fund will aim to transform educational attainment in Africa and the Middle East through pay-for-results Development Impact Bonds. Its strategy will be to rapidly scale up proven or innovative interventions in areas such as early childhood development and educational technology, to help low income countries transform the level and quality of education provision.
Tracking youth employment and nutrition across Africa
We are in discussions with the African Development Bank regarding the development of two dashboards. One would track the success of its work to create 25m jobs by 2025, and the other would track the success of its investments to improve child nutrition.
