The KIX LAC hub invites interested applicants for the 2nd Call for Innovations in Educational Justice in Central America and the Caribbean. This call is organized by the Laboratory for Research and Innovation in Education for Latin America and the Caribbean (SUMMA), the Organisation of Eastern Caribbean States (OECS), and the International Development Research Centre (IDRC), with the support of The University of the West Indies, the University of Guyana and the Universidad Pedagógica Nacional Francisco Morazán of Honduras.


The call seeks to identify and promote innovations that are in an initial development phase and require technical and monetary support to improve their implementation model in the KIX LAC countries (Dominica, Grenada, Guatemala, Guyana, El Salvador, Haiti, Honduras, Nicaragua, Saint Lucia, and Saint Vincent and the Grenadines). Applications should respond to the main challenges of education systems in the region.


The KIX LAC hub will award USD $10 000 to four successful applicants. Selected applicants will also be granted access to a workshop on Theory of Change and another workshop for the generation of the Sustainability Plan, with evaluation and feedback. The process of support and accompaniment offered through this call, aims to strengthen the innovation model and to establish, through research, evidence of its effectiveness.


Last year, in the first edition of the call for innovations, 78 applicants from 11 countries in the LAC region developed applications around topics such as educational programs, digital platforms, workshops and tutorials, applications, teacher training, and pedagogical material, among others.
