Education Outcomes Fund (EOF) Announces Hosting by UNICEF, Global Expansion To Tackle Learning Crisis

The Education Outcomes Fund (EOF) announces today that it is moving to operate as an independent trust fund hosted by UNICEF. It is also expanding its operations in Africa and the Middle East to become a global fund. This expansion is based on the growing need for an outcomes approach in education funding as the world grapples with a deteriorating learning crisis.

The Education Outcomes Fund was set up in 2018 by the International Commission on Financing Global Education Opportunity (Education Commission) and the Global Steering Group for Impact Investment. Building on the proven impact of outcomes-based education programs in countries around the world, EOF will take this approach to a global scale.

EOF will work to galvanize the global community to support outcomes-based programs, as an innovative solution to the learning crisis. Outcomes programs will build evidence through measurable results, enabling the scaling of successful and proven interventions to the benefit of millions of children globally, especially the most marginalized.
