In pursuance of its vision, our work aims at changing underlying policy, legislation and
practice that undermine the right to education while at the same time strengthen government’s
education systems, and support the development of infrastructure. We dedicate our collective efforts
in ensuring equity in education through our advocacy work as well as research, budget tracking and analysis,
capacity building and service delivery. We are at the centre of innovation piloting with the view to bring meaningful
change in education. We also endeavour to mobilise and capacity communities into critical masses for change in
their respective communities, and for support to the schools. Finally, CSEC works across all sectors of
education: early childhood education, basic education, secondary education, tertiary education, adult education
and lifelong learning.
