Developing Effective Private Education Nigeria (DEEPEN) is a five-year programme funded by the United Kingdom’s Department for International Development (DFID), implemented by Cambridge Education, a member of the Mott MacDonald Group. The programme seeks to improve the quality of education in private schools, especially those serving children from low-income households. It is a programme driven by the demand of parents and children for a better education.
Using the Making Markets Work For The Poor (M4P) approach, DEEPEN provided Technical Assistance Grant in 2016 to W-Holistic Business Solutions for the pilot SEED project in reaching 51 affordable private schools in 2 Local Government Areas (LGAs) of Lagos State, Nigeria.
