STiR Education donations received

This is an online portal with information on donations that were announced publicly (or have been shared with permission) that were of interest to Vipul Naik. The git repository with the code for this portal, as well as all the underlying data, is available on GitHub. All payment amounts are in current United States dollars (USD). The repository of donations is being seeded with an initial collation by Issa Rice as well as continued contributions from him (see his commits and the contract work page listing all financially compensated contributions to the site) but all responsibility for errors and inaccuracies belongs to Vipul Naik. Current data is preliminary and has not been completely vetted and normalized; if sharing a link to this site or any page on this site, please include the caveat that the data is preliminary (if you want to share without including caveats, please check with Vipul Naik). We expect to have completed the first round of development by the end of March 2022. See the about page for more details. Also of interest: pageview data on analytics.vipulnaik.com, tutorial in README, request for feedback to EA Forum.

Mulago Foundation400,000.0012014--https://mulagofoundation.org/Portfolio/stir-education-- Donation date is not a single date but rather when funding began. Rainer fellow in 2013. Mulago’s reasons for investing: “Teachers are key drivers of student learning, but teaching is in crisis: in Uganda, 84% of teachers report wanting to quit their job, and in India, 25% of teachers are absent daily. A student’s experience can be enhanced by access to textbooks, new school buildings, and uniforms, but a motivated teacher has a far greater effect on a child’s desire to learn than any combination of the above. STIR finds and supports motivated teachers in India and Uganda, helping them form powerful networks to improve their own teaching and contribute to a wider movement of excellence. These networks change teacher behavior -- ranging from attendance to time on task -- which can directly affect student learning. STIR is collecting rigorous evidence to demonstrate the link between teacher motivation and improved learning outcomes. If the results are positive, this model could reposition teachers as the solution instead of the problem.”.
