Strengthening our partnerships - Navitas Education Trust announces FY23 recipients
16th Aug, 2022 Feature story:
Drawing inspiration from the Navitas purpose of transforming lives through education, the Navitas Education Trust (NET) provides support to charitable organisations with an education focus to bring about change where it is most needed.
Navitas is proud to announce the following NET partnerships for FY23:
CAMFED (Campaign for Female Education) breaks down barriers for girls and women in rural communities through its award-winning Learner Guide program. Learner Guides are young women who have completed school with CAMFED support and, through a structured program, receive financial and educational benefits in exchange for supporting the next generation of vulnerable girls with life and learning skills, health education, and psycho-social support. NET funding will enhance the reach of 50 Learner Guides in rural Zambia.
PLUS Education (Indonesia)
The PLUS Education (formerly 40K Foundation) has developed an innovative English program that is both a learning app and pedagogical framework. It provides multiple learning pathways for students to allow for diverse learning styles. The program has been proven to accelerate children's English language outcomes, helping to increase future prospects. NET will be funding the English 4 South Maluku project, Indonesia.
Commenting on the partnership, Plus Education CEO Swetha Prakash said, “We’re very excited to be partnering with Navitas and Heka Leka to extend the benefits of English literacy and digital learning to children in Banda. This will be the ultimate test for us and for our technology, as you really cannot get much more remote than the Banda islands, but I have no doubt the strength of our partnerships will see us rise to the challenge.”
Adara Development (Nepal)
The NET will continue to help fund Adara Development’s remote education work in Nepal, helping to expand access to education, improve the quality of education from early learning through to higher education and teach students about the importance of environmental protection. Spanning across 10 schools, this program includes the ‘One Child, One Tree’ project, where 1500 students will be given a native tree sapling to plant and nurture.
Classroom of Hope (Cambodia & Indonesia)
The NET is supporting the Improving education and sustainable development project, which is providing School Improvement Training to directors and senior teachers at schools in rural Cambodia. Participants learn how to develop strategic plans, collect data and draft budgets to maximize on contributions from the Provincial Office of Education. The project also provides IT training to teachers with a focus on supporting online delivery, allowing learning to be sustained long term. Funding from the NET is also supporting the eco block school building project in Lombok Indonesia.
Since 2013, Navitas has contributed annual funds to the NET, assisting numerous world-wide education-based projects. In turn, these projects have helped many people gain better access to education, improved the quality of offerings, and contributed to teacher training and infrastructure.
