Developing Effective Private Education Nigeria (DEEPEN)

Developing Effective Private Education Nigeria (DEEPEN) is an innovative programme initiated by the UK’s Department for International Development (DFID) to improve learning outcomes in Lagos’ private schools. DEEPEN will achieve this by creating an enabling environment for private schools and a more effective market for them to offer better quality education.

Through a Making Markets Work for the Poor (M4P) methodology, DEEPEN seeks to facilitate:
• a more transparent, inclusive and favourable regulatory environment for private schools
• increased access to financial products and services for parents and schools
• access to quality yet affordable school improvement services
• increased availability of media platforms to discuss education issues and provide information on good schooling practices

These will be achieved through the programme’s four work streams namely Rules and Standards, Finance, School Improvement Services, and Information.

Civil Society Action Coalition on Eduation for All

The Civil society Action Coalition on Education for All (CSACEFA) is a coalition of NGOs, CBOs and FBOs working on education issues in Nigeria. Forty (40) education NGOs came together in the run-up to the World Education Summit in Dakar in April 2000 to form the coalition. CSACEFA developed a core set of positions and attended the Dakar Summit to join in the call for quality education for all. The coalition has since expanded its membership to over six hundred (600) CSOs covering the 36 States of Nigeria and Federal Capital Territory (FCT) and has been engaging, advocating and inputting to education policies and programmes at Local, National and International levels. Our Mission: To ensure free, quality and inclusive education for all through effective participation of civil society. Our Vision: A Nigeria guaranteed of quality education and dignity for all structures. CSACEFA's activities are coordinated at the state level by an elected state coordinator and at the zonal level by an eight (8) member Facilitating Committee (FC) drawn from the 6 geopolitical zones, the FCT and a representative of International Development Partners (IDPs) elected for a maximum 2 terms of two years each. The Facilitating Committee is led by a National Moderator. The Facilitating Committee is expected to meet and have quarterly meetings, at least four meetings in a year depending on availability of funds, while the coalition has an Annual General Forum (AGF). The Annual General Forum is the apex decision making organ of the coalition. The coalition is managed through the secretariat led by the Policy Advisor/National Coordinator who oversees the national secretariat and coordinates the states and reports to the Facilitating Committee.
