2021 Education Innovation Awards

For nearly 20 years Theirworld has been partnering with organisations to help every child have the best start in life, a safe place to learn and skills for the future.

We value collaboration and want to work with leaders, changemakers and innovators who have exciting projects to fuel this change.

Are you working hard to make a difference in the lives of vulnerable young people?
Does your organisation have ambitions to take those ideas and projects to the next level?

Theirworld can help you to unlock your potential.

Our Education Innovation Awards 2021 will help interesting and exciting programmes prepare to scale up and reach even more marginalised children and youth.

To apply for the Education Innovation Awards, your organisation must be:
1. Registered as a nonprofit, NGO or charity;
2. At pilot stage with 200+ beneficiaries and 18+ months’ existence and some initial evidence of scaleup potential;
3. Working in, or planning to scale up to, one or more of the countries in which Theirworld is currently working: Greece, Kenya, Lebanon, Nigeria, Tanzania, Turkey, or Uganda.
4. Focused on an issue that falls under one or more of Theirworld’s three pillars:
a) The best start in life - includes a healthy birth, and quality and inclusive early childhood education.
b) A safe place to learn - means looking out for vulnerable children and youth, especially children in emergencies and conflict.
c) Skills for the future - ensures all young people are ready to become engaged citizens able to participate meaningfully in society and the future of work.
5. Reaching marginalised learners, such as people in poverty and/or refugee or displaced populations.

The core themes of our Education Innovation Awards are Innovation, Investment and Inspiration.

Does it sound like your project would be a good fit?

The Awards will help five winners to build their skills and capacities through masterclasses, one-to-one mentoring and £50,000 scale-ready grants.
