Application deadline: April 30, 2024

Eager to demonstrate that your education solution has a positive impact on learners? Apply for support from expert researchers and social entrepreneurs who will help build your approach to generating and using evidence to improve your product or program and strengthen children’s learning outcomes. For the 2024 LEAP Challenge, applications from education organizations that meet the following criteria are welcome:
A solution (program or product) that improves learning outcomes for children ages 2-12 in Sub-Saharan Africa or Latin America.
A solution (program or product) that is in the pilot or growth stage of development:
Pilot: The solution has been launched in at least one community, but is still iterating on design or business model. If for-profit, is generally working to gain traction and may have completed a fundraising round with investment capital. (Often 10+ users/direct beneficiaries)
Growth: An established solution available in one or more communities with a consistent design and approach, ready for further growth in multiple communities or countries. If for-profit, has generally completed at least one formal investment round (Seed stage or later). If nonprofit, has an established set of donors and/or revenue streams.
