Who we are

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 The Foreign, Commonwealth & Development Office (FCDO) 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;

  1. Strengthen selected complementary education service providers to deliver quality education services that enable students to achieve improved, accredited learning outcomes.
  2. 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.

MEC operates as a multi-donor pooled fund. This means that all donors contribute towards the overall programme strategy, alignment of strategy, participation, reporting and operating procedures.
