Meghan is the Evaluation Director at Educate!.  Educate! works to transform education in Africa to teach youth the skills to solve poverty. Educate! directly implements our model in schools and partners with governments for education reforms, reaching more than 14,000 students intensively across 500 schools in Uganda and Rwanda, and more than 240,000 students more broadly. A randomized controlled trial found that the participants in the Uganda program earned double the income of a control group and saw a 64% increase in business ownership. Educate!’s vision is to reach one million students annually across 10 countries in Africa by 2024.

As Evaluation Director, Meghan sets Educate!’s strategic direction for evaluation, oversees all evaluation data collection, analysis, and communication of results, and manages evaluation projects for the organization. Prior to joining Educate!, Meghan was a Policy Manger at the Abdul Latif Jameel Poverty Action Lab (J-PAL) at MIT, where she oversaw J-PAL's Labor Markets and Youth sector and its work on cost-effectiveness analysis.  Meghan holds an M.A. in Development Economics and Program Evaluation from the Fletcher School at Tufts University and a B.A. in Economics and International Relations from American University.
