Language and Literacy in Rural Wolaita

Tutored girls

The ‘Language and Literacy in Rural Wolaita’ project will operate in 45 elementary schools in the impoverished Southern Nations and Nationalities Peoples Regional State (SNNPRS), where population growth has placed enormous pressure on land for subsistence farming as well as on all social service provision. Working in 45 schools across two marginalised, densely populated woredas (districts) of Wolaita, this project will reach 41,126 disadvantaged learners. The project delivery approach is distinctive through its support of local delivery structures and its emphasis on capacity-building, engagement and dissemination with community members and policy-makers.

Katakwi School Improvement Project (KSIP)

Katakwi pupils

To improve the quality of education in conflict-affected Katakwi district, this project focuses on both educating parents about their rights and responsibilities and enabling parents’ access to schools to learn about current school performance and plans to improve it. It promotes effective and inclusive school planning, community engagement in education, use of school performance data to inform education planning. This project will improve the quality of education available to over 53,000 pupils in 75 schools in Katakwi. 

Tullow Oil - Link School Improvement Project (TOLSIP)

Buliisa SPAM

The project worked to improve the quality of education in Hoima and Buliisa Districts. The core of the intervention used the School Performance Review (SPR) process to inform school management and governance training and the support and training of teachers, in order to improve school functionality and performance. A lower primary literacy element was introduced into the programme in the last year.
