Innovative Secondary Education for Skills Enhancement (ISESE)

Results for Development Institute, with support from the Rockefeller Foundation

Job creation and income generation are vital for economic growth in developing countries. This in turn depends on the availability of an appropriately-educated and properly skilled workforce with knowledge, skills and competencies necessary for work in the globalized economy. However, both limited enrolment and poor quality of secondary education in developing countries mean that youth do not acquire the skills needed for employment and income generation. The movement towards knowledge-based industries makes the completion of at least quality, relevant secondary school particularly critical. Additionally, the expansion of primary education is increasing demand for secondary education in developing countries.

<h2 style="2em">About Us</h2> <img src="http://www.changemakers.com/sites/default/files/r4d_logo_2.jpg" style="float:left; margin:0 10px 10px 0;"/> <p> Results for Development Institute (R4D) is a non-profit organization whose mission is to unlock solutions to tough development challenges that prevent people in low- and middle-income countries from realizing their full potential. Using multiple approaches in multiple sectors, including Global Education, Global Health, Governance and Market Dynamics, R4D supports the discovery and implementation of new ideas for reducing poverty and improving lives around the world. </p> <p>R4D’s education initiatives concentrate on education financing (specifically focusing on aid effectiveness, emerging donors and innovative financing), early learning, secondary education skills development, and innovative non-state education interventions. This area complements our work in health and governance, and cross-cutting themes include the relationships among education, nutrition and health, and supporting civil society organizations in their work to increase public sector accountability.</p> <p>For questions, comments or feedback, please contact us at <a href="mailto:[email protected]">[email protected]</a></p>
