Twaweza partnered with the Dar es Salaam based social venture company D.Light Ltd (SolarAid) to sell (at a discounted price) thousands of re-chargeable solar lamps to secondary school students and teachers in Tanzania, with the goal of providing an affordable, clean and healthy source of light.
Education-focused information materials produced by Twaweza were included in the packaging of the lights and affixed onto the light fixtures. As part of the distribution, a record of schools and contact persons were collected, to enable easy follow-up. After two years of collaboration, Twaweza (together with D.Light) wishes to carry out a monitoring exercise assessing the effects of the lights primarily on students. In addition, Twaweza will use this opportunity to assess the recall and engagement with another product – the exercise books containing the Uwezo tests, as printed and distributed by Tanzania Printing Services, in partnership with Twaweza.
Twaweza Learning, Monitoring and Evaluation (LME) unit is looking for competent and reputable organisations who can implement the activities that this work entails.
Interested parties may contact firstname.lastname@example.org for documentation further outlining the interventions and the desired study design.
