  • Lessons from a Meeting of International Education Funders: Reflections from Zenex Foundation

    Zenex Foundation hosted the International Education Funders Group (IEFG) meeting on 26-28 February 2018. The IEFG is a member-led learning and collaborating network for foundations, donor-advised funds, and other private grantmakers. The theme was Monitoring, Evaluation, and Learning: Strengthening our Practice and our Field and this was the first time it was held in Africa. The IEFG meeting was a great opportunity for the Zenex team to share ideas and network with other funders working in education.
