Peter HintonPeter Hinton is a part-time doctoral student at the University of Oxford. His DPhil topic is impact investing in Africa. His research has identified a $1.3bn demand for finance from low-cost, non-state early-year and primary schools in five African cities where such schools appear to be educating between 40% and 84% of children. His project is to understand the barriers to providing this finance and what role can philanthropy, conventional finance and impact investing play in addressing this need and increasing the supply and quality of accessible and affordable education. The research considers whether aspects of trust that low-cost schools appear to have built with their communities can be considered by providers of finance and providers of school licenses.
