Lugungu and School Support Initiative in Buliisa – Phase 2 (LaSSIB-2)

P2 Learners in Masindi

To improve the quality of education, this project focuses on improving reading in the mother tongue in the early grades and enhancing the management and functionality of schools using Link’s innovative School Performance Review (SPR) process. Learner outcomes will be tested using the Early Grade Reading Assessment (EGRA). This project also aims to raise awareness of the value of reading among wider school communities in Uganda, particularly supporting the Ugandan Ministry of Education and Sport’s (MoES) initiative to teach in the learner’s mother-tongue.

woreda school improvement project

Link supported implementation of the Ministry of Education’s School Improvement Programme (SIP), which forms part of the General Education Quality Improvement Package. We aligned our work with the government’s SIP in order to generate learning which is applicable to government frameworks. Excitingly, the SIP and Link have very similar aims and processes, and there are clear areas where our organisational learning can add value.


In partnership with RTI International we are increasing parental and community engagement in supporting student reading. This is part of the Malawi Early Grade Reading Improvement Activity (MERIT) which is designed to assist the Government of Malawi’s efforts to improve reading skills of Malawian students in Standards 1-4 nationwide.
