Eleven delegates from eight African school network organisations attended the trip, for many it was their first time in India.

Over five days, we visited seven schools of which six were GSF members. We held two roundtable discussions on public-private partnerships and school leadership. We alsohosted panel discussions on social entrepreneurship and on private sector engagement in education, where we had also invited key stakeholders in Indian education. This report shares some of what we learned during the trip.

Last month, Global Schools Forum (GSF) hosted its inaugural Study Tour in India. Eleven delegates from eight African school network organisations attended the trip, for many it was their first time in India. The purpose of the trip was for these delegates to visit schools in a new country and context, hear from social entrepreneurs and innovators, network and collaborate with other school operators and take back lessons and observations to strengthen their organisations. Over five days, two in Mumbai and three in New Delhi, we visited seven schools of which six were GSF members. We held two roundtable discussions on working with government through public-private partnerships and on strengthening school leadership with a group of practitioners. We also hosted panel discussions on social entrepreneurship in Mumbai and on private sector engagement in education in New Delhi, where we had also invited key stakeholders in Indian education.
