The Center for Universal Education at Brookings Institution is hosting an event in Washington D.C. to discuss the world's first development impact bond in education. The impact bond provides funding for Educate Girls, a non-profit that aims to increase enrollment for out-of-school girls and improve learning outcomes for girls and boys in Rajasthan, India. The event will explore the experiences of the key stakeholders, the overall learnings, and potential recommendations for those considering social impact bonds, as well as the successes and challenges of the model in order to contribute to the evidence on when, and how, it can be most effective.
For further background on impact bonds in developing countries, please see the Center for Universal Education’s report.
This event will also be webcast live—so if you are unable to join in D.C., please consider participating online.
