Link Community Development

Improving the quality of education in Africa

Link features in UNESCO research

UNESCO IIEP publication


Look out world, our work is getting some global recognition as we are proud to announce that our research has been published in a recent book from UNESCO’s International Institute for Education Planning, or IIEP.

The book ‘investigates the use and impact of school report cards in sub-Saharan Africa as a means to promote transparency and accountability while keeping corruption at bay’ – essentially meaning that by helping communities to understand how their school is performing for their children, they can push the school to improve and to follow-through on their promises. 


Link’s projects in Ghana and Malawi are explored as good examples of creating and embedding these ‘school report cards’ within education systems and communities.

You can read the full report here, and check out pages 103 and 127 for Link’s case studies!
