The brief is based on nine case studies of successful complementary education programs in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Egypt, Ghana, Guatemala, Honduras, Mali, and Zambia, demonstrating that such approaches can effectively reach and educate otherwise underserved populations in various geographical, political, and social contexts.
