Welcome to the Myanmar Education Consortium (MEC). MEC is a programme to improve the number of children in Myanmar accessing and completing quality basic education. MEC started in early 2013 with support from DFAT (Australia) and DFID (UK) with DANIDA also joining in 2014 in order to address emergency issues in the education sector.
The MEC programme is targeting Hard-to-reach children understood as a range of factors, economic, geographic and social that result in children accessing and completing quality education.
With an updated strategy in 2016, the MEC adopted a systems-strengthening approach to provide support for the development of ethnic and monastic education systems. The program works with established education providers to place a focus on improving the quality and inclusivity of education in Myanmar through improved retention, completion and learning outcomes; and with a broader range of diverse stakeholders to address key policy barriers to effective education within a coherent, equitable education system. In 2018, the MEC set forward plans for progress against two key objectives to achieve its goal;
- Strengthen selected complementary education service providers to deliver quality education services that enable students to achieve improved, accredited learning outcomes.
- Support the transition to a more enabling policy environment that brings together a broad base of education stakeholders to promote a diverse and inclusive national education system.
We currently support 13 partners across the country in primary and non-formal education programs in the informal (non-government) and formal sectors.
