Global Education Initiative

The Global Education Initiative (GEI) builds on a proven model of public-private partnership (PPP) that combines the strengths of government, the private sector and civil society stakeholders to advance education. Together, business leaders of the Information Technology and Telecommunications Community of the World Economic Forum launched the initiative to create new sustainable models for education reform in the developing world through PPP.

The Jordan Education Initiative was the first PPP launched. Similar initiatives have been launched in the Palestinian Territories as well as in the Indian State of Rajasthan. Additional countries have also requested to be included.

GEI Action

  • Primary research and advocacy on the opportunities and value proposition for how the global business community can work with government and the development community to improve education
  • Action oriented country and regional initiatives that engage all stakeholders in PPPs to improve education
  • Methodologies, best practices and actionable frameworks on how business, government, and the development communities can initiate and create sustainable PPPs

    We are pleased to recognize Cisco Systems and CA as Initiative Partners.
