About Link Community Development Uganda
Link’s School Performance Review model has been modified and adapted for national implementation as part of Uganda’s Monitoring Learning Achievement programme. This impacts every school in Uganda. Link Community Development Uganda also pioneered Early Grade Reading Assessments in the local languages of Alur and Lugungu supporting government policy on promoting the use of local languages in the early grades.
“The Link project improved Early Grade reading results (EGRA) results due to regular school based support and guidance by Link staff which transformed targeted primary teachers into strong literacy teachers” (external evaluator, 2015)
