Following five years of implementing our annual learning assessments, Uwezo at Twaweza have created a short film looking at successes and challenges, and the wider implications for the links between citizen agency and service delivery.
Did we start a massive citizen movement demanding better quality education? Did policy-makers, initially dismissive of our work, see the light and bow to the pressure? What does Uwezo bring to the education landscape?
This video was created as part of an online course on citizen engagement, developed by the World Bank, in partnership with the London School of Economics (LSE), the Overseas Development Institute (ODI), Participedia and CIVICUS, and hosted by Coursera. Sign up or learn more about the course.
