On April 27, Teach For All participated in a panel at the seventh International Finance Corporation’s Global Private Education Conference in Hong Kong. The IFC—part of the World Bank Group—event gathered over 350 thought leaders in the public and private sectors in education from across the globe to explore the role of partnerships in promoting impact and sustainability of education, as well as to exchange best practices.
During the panel “Business-to-Government/Non-Government Partnerships: Towards achieving Impact and Sustainability,” Anna Molero, Senior Director of Government and Multilateral Partnerships at Teach For All, joined representatives from the World Bank, Kroton Educacional, and CARE Foundation to discuss successful partnerships in the education sector. Each panelist presented examples of effective collaborative initiatives involving the public, private, and third sector, that seek to increase impact and sustainability in education. Anna shared how the Teach For All network’s approach to developing local leadership capacity is crucial to effecting systemic change in education and as a route to achieving the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal on Education (SDG 4): “Ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and promote lifelong learning opportunities for all” by 2030.
The event was an exciting opportunity to illustrate how partners in the Teach For All network are actively collaborating with diverse stakeholders to expand educational opportunity in their countries and around the world. For example, the World Bank has partnered with Teach For All to measure the impact of select network organizations.
