Project Overview

The USAID Eastern Europe & Eurasia Social Legacy Program (E&E SLP) reaches out to youth and other vulnerable groups in the E&E region, helping them develop the tools they need to become local leaders of social change. SLP is implemented by Education Development Center (EDC) through EQUIP3 ¡s USAID-funded mechanism focused on youth development. SLP is implementing three components in the E&E region:

1) Anti-corruption in Education (Armenia, Azerbaijan, and Macedonia);
2) Disabled and Other Vulnerable Groups (Armenia and Georgia); and
3) Workforce Development (Kosovo and Montenegro).

The SLP Anti-Corruption component has developed the Transparent Education Network

(TEN) aimed at:
(a) raising awareness about corruption in education and its impact on society;
(b) strengthening local capacity to analyze effects of corruption in education at individual and school levels; and
(c) promote a culture of transparency and accountability in secondary and
tertiary level schools.


The Transparent Education Network (TEN) brings together key individuals and organizations from the Eastern Europe and Eurasia region to study and address corruption in education. TEN fosters peer-to-peer collaboration through dialogue about lessons learned, best practices, challenges, and resources for increasing transparency in education sectors and schools in the respective countries. The regional network is strengthened through ongoing communication among TEN partners, the TEN website, the TEN Roundtable, and the consolidation and dissemination of resources.

Specific project activities include:

1) Development of TEN, a regional network interested in promoting transparency in schools and education systems.
2) Implementation of youth-led activities to raise awareness and promote understanding of issues of corruption in schools, its causes, and its consequences.
3) Development of Codes of Conduct, through participatory approaches, to foster transparency in schools.
4) Development of youth skills and organizational capacities to promote the use of more transparent education practices in the education sector.
5) Partnership building with universities, donors, and other key stakeholders to identify and implement strategies to address corruption in education institutions.
