The Aga Khan Development Network has a great deal of experience with blended finance and outcome-based financing. We have just started implementing a new impact bond in Portugal focused on "family literacy." AKF Prt is the social investor, the National Early Childhood Professionals Association is the implementing partner and the Ministry of Education the public partner; together with a research partner ISPA (Institute of Applied Psychology) and the outcome-analysis partner MAZE (Social Investment Lab). The main goal is to improve literacy skills in writing and reading together with family literacy practises contributing to lower retention rates in basic education and promote school success.
