Moving from Research to Action: RTEI Opens 2017 Call for Advocacy Strategies
RTEI partners with civil society organizations, research institutions, and governments to collect data on a wide range of indicators explicitly derived from the international right to education framework. RTEI is designed to track progress on key right to education indicators in the areas of Governance, Availability, Accessibility, Acceptability, and Adaptability (the 4 As). RTEI further provides the means to monitor progress across additional issue areas, such as girls’ education, children with disabilities, privatization, data availability, and more in order for civil society to strategically use such findings to support national-level campaigns around the world. For more information, see www.rtei.org.
Following the release of the 2015 pilot report of the RTEI, 82 organizations from 40 countries responded to the call of applications to become one of 15 partners for the 2016 RTEI implementation round. 2016 is the first official round of data collection and will be followed by one year of in-country advocacy. RTEI operates on a recurring two-year project cycle, with one year being data collection and publishing and the next year initiating deeper in-country advocacy work based on the findings. RESULTS Educational Fund is now offering an opportunity to support current partners to implement targeted in-country advocacy strategies based on 2016 RTEI findings.
Applicants must be current RTEI 2016 partners based in the Global South.
Selected advocacy strategies will be supported with up to USD $20,000 disbursed in two installments.
