About Us

Established in 2008 as a registered 501(c)3 organization, the IDP Foundation, Inc. is a private non-profit foundation dedicated to encouraging and supporting the development of innovative and sustainable solutions to complex global issues. Specifically, we support local and international partners who innovate, develop and see progress in all forms of learning, from critical medical research to classroom education.

We believe that education is key to conquering many of the world’s greatest challenges. We believe that everyone should have equal access to educational opportunities to break the cycle of poverty. We believe that a combination of smart philanthropy and investment can galvanize solutions to make that future a reality.

Our keystone initiative is the IDP Rising Schools Program, a groundbreaking education finance and training initiative created to empower existing low-fee private schools across Ghana. The program was developed as an innovative and sustainable model for improving educational infrastructure in private schools serving low-income families and has since demonstrated that with adequate training, these school owners can improve their management and efficiently use their newly found loans to sustain and improve their institutions.


EDUCATION TEAM STRATEGY

Building off the successes and learnings of the keystone IDP Rising Schools Program, the Education Team has a long-term goal of contributing to education ecosystems that provide quality education to all children. Our intended outcomes are for:

> Low-fee private school leaders to have the knowledge and resources to establish the necessary conditions for providing quality education

> Low-fee private schools to be well-organized and represented within local, national and global education networks

> Governments to implement effective policies to partner with, support, and regulate LFPS

> Education practitioners and donors effectively integrate and support the LFPS sector in strategy and practice locally, nationally and globally.
