On 1st February 2023, I joined USAID to mark the National Close-Out Ceremony for USAID Partnership for Education: Learning.
The USAID Partnership for Education: Learning supported the Ministry of Education to improve reading performance for pupils in public primary schools.
Since 2014, the project has supported 700,000 pupils and provided training to over 51,000 Teachers, Curriculum Leads and Headteachers. Again, this project has distributed over 14 million locally developed and context-relevant TLMs, including Braille, to over 16,000 primary schools.
At the handing-over ceremony, I called on all agencies under the Ministry of Education to uphold and maintain the culture and best practices established by USAID over the past nine (9) years in the beneficiary schools.
I am grateful to USAID and all other stakeholders whose efforts have made this a success.
