The Myanmar Education Consortium (MEC) was established in 2013 to support the provision of education services for marginalised, underserved children. With an updated strategy developed for 2017-2021, MEC adopted a ‘systems-strengthening’ approach, to provide support for the development of ethnic and monastic complementary education systems. The programme works with established education providers to place a focus on developing the quality and inclusivity of education in Myanmar for improved retention, completion and learning outcomes, and with a broader range of diverse stakeholders to address key policy barriers to effective education for the achievement of an equitable education system.
MEC is supported by funding from DFAT, Danida and UK aid.
