The Backround and Role
 
Education innovations in the non-state sector are rapidly emerging in low and middle income countries.

To address this information gap, the Results for Development Institute (R4D) will launch the Center for Education Innovations (CEI). CEI aims to increase access to quality education for the poor by identifying, analyzing, and connecting non-state education innovations.

GEMS Education Solutions will serve as CEIs in-country representative in East Africa, helping to raise CEI’s profile and cultivate a network of CEI stakeholders (including program implementers, policy makers, researchers, and funders).
 
The Events Manager will support a research project, designed to identify, analyze, and connect non-state education programs/innovations in East Africa.

  • Experience of organizing networking events.
  • Experience of speaking at events and publicizing information and research.
  • Experience of developing marketing material (such as press releases, etc.)
