Collective Effect

Collective Effect (Efecto Colectivo) has been formed with the aim of promoting innovation in education and of teaching the essential skills that children and young people in Chile’s public education system need to face the 21st century’s job market.

Collective Effect is a collaborative alliance, led by Fundación Reimagina and supported by BHP Foundation, which seeks to connect and support organizations that work on: 

  • the development of effective, innovative and scalable solutions to boost the transformation of the teaching and learning model in Chile. 

  • the implementation of solutions already proven in the educational ecosystem, which can potentially generate an impact on different levels, from students and teachers to public policies.

Early in 2024, Collective Effect launched its fund and made a call to organizations to apply to receive technical advice, accompaniment, and funding for up to US$300,000 to not only scale their projects but develop learning systems and collective impact strategies.

Eight innovative educational projects in Chile has been chosen to receive support from BHP Foundation Collective Effect fund.
