Donors provide financial and technical assistance to help partner developing countries as they design and implement their education strategies.

In GPE developing partner countries, donors provide technical expertise to national governments and play a pivotal role in the coordination of local partners, as well as in the elaboration and monitoring of education strategies and programs.

Donors contribute funding to education on a bilateral basis and through the GPE Fund, and may act as grant agents for GPE grants.
