The OECD and several global Christian ministries are currently implementing developmental and educational projects or programs. Christian churches may use tools provided by the OECD, such as the OECD learning compass for 2030 or other aid-to-education activities (OECD, n.d.). Currently, the OECD assists the educational sector through direct aid towards specific development projects within education, such as teacher training, education policy, facility improvement, educational research, and the formulation of programs for primary, secondary, and post-secondary students. Like the OECD, global Christian ministries work internationally and provide services and programs with various specializations. Current education projects include several schools in Africa, Asia, the Pacific, the Middle East, and Europe. While certain schools are more generalized, other developmental organizations and programs aim to provide tools and resources for local populations.
For instance, the ministries aid in building furniture projects, development centers, and scholarship projects. The OECD and projects by global Christian ministries are often found in the same countries and regions. As both focus on education and development, it would benefit both organizations to become partners. First, both organizations would have cohesive data on local issues and already ongoing projects. Second, universal implementation of professional and adequate programs can be observed from project to project. Third, employees within both organizations can have better communication and access to materials and information. Fourth, the organizations can share the responsibilities and roles throughout a number of regions in order to better allocate and utilize resources and labor. The OECD and the global Christian ministries can offer each other support and better use of their resources through cooperation.
