Call for Proposals: Entrepreneurship Education Landscape Review


Allan & Gill Gray Philanthropy East Africa (AGGP EA) is seeking a research partner to conduct a comprehensive study on entrepreneurship education and training (EET) in Rwanda’s primary, secondary, and tertiary institutions. This study aims to map the current landscape, identify opportunities and challenges, and provide data to inform AGGP EA’s future strategies.


AGGP EA focuses on fostering responsible entrepreneurship among young people in Eastern Africa. Despite formal education, many young people struggle to find employment or develop entrepreneurial skills. Initiatives like the Wavumbuzi Entrepreneurship Challenge, the Jasiri Talent Investor, and the Jasiri Growth Accelerator aim to build a sustainable entrepreneurial ecosystem. This research will deepen AGGP EA’s understanding of EET and guide strategic interventions.


  • Map existing EET programs and identify challenges and opportunities.
  • Understand key ecosystem players, including educational institutions and support organizations.
  • Explore common understandings of entrepreneurship among ecosystem players.
  • Highlight gaps in EET approaches, focusing on curriculum, pedagogy, and teacher training.
  • Propose potential interventions based on global standards for AGGP EA.
