Tanzania Tusome Pamoja
Component 3: Effective engagement of parents and community in education increased Community and parental engagement in education is vital for improving education instruction and attainment, mobilizing resources, and increasing accountability for results. Lessons learned during USAID’s global effort to improve reading outcomes for 100 million children are (1) targeted training for parents and community members to support measureable reading progress and skills of young children; and (2) civil society involvement in measuring basic skills helps hold schools and educational institutions accountable for improving quality. Tanzania and Zanzibar have strong records of community engagement, with active school management committees and civil society organizations that advocate for reforms. The contractor must leverage the capacities in the communities assisted under Tusome Pamoja to create measurable engagement of parents and communities in children’s mastery of reading and writing skills in approximately 3,000 communities in line with the Annual Workplan.
