Grants in Action
Sierra Leone is using a Program Implementation Grant to expand access and improve the quality of basic education. Money is being put towards improved facilities, with the goal of constructing and rehabilitating over 300 basic classrooms and outfitting them with desks, chairs and chalkboards. Education quality will be improved by expanding teacher in-service training and professional development.
Assessment and Eligibility
GPE’s Board of Directors decides on the amount of the grant allocation based on the Global Partnership Needs and Performance Framework, which determines how much financial support is available for the developing country partners for the three-year grant period. The list of these countries is reviewed annually and all changes are approved by the Board of Directors.
