The DG Murray Trust (DGMT) invites proposals for experiments that tackle school drop-out in South
“We invite you – as well-known organisations in this field, or fresh new alliances – to design and
implement a programme focused on identifying Grade 8 and/or 9 learners who are at risk of dropping
out and putting in measures that reduce the rates of grade repetition and drop-out.
The project will be implemented over a period of 36 months through a phased approach.
We are looking for proposals that make a strong and compelling case as to how the proposed
strategies get to the heart of the challenge of school drop-out in South Africa. We would like to see
crisp and different ideas, connecting people and resources in unusual ways. At the same time, we
recognise that sometimes what is missing is just good implementation of well-established solutions.
Proposals will be reviewed with an eye to cost-effectiveness at scale.”
DGMT invites interested parties to read the supporting Terms of Reference. For further queries,
contact Chiara Baumann at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The deadline for proposals is 29th February 2016 @ 11:00.
