Do Uwezo's activities impact the communities in which their assessment of learning outcomes is implemented? Do the findings stimulate national debate and public action? Is their communications strategy effective? We are looking for answers to these key questions.

In 2010 Uwezo East Africa Regional Manager Sara Ruto gave a presentation at the World Bank in Washington, DC on the Uwezo initiative. She spoke of the tests school-aged children in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda were given to assess their capabilities in numeracy and literacy. She also spoke of Uwezo's communication strategy and how the organization's work had led to greater public understanding and debate about learning.

Last year, Uwezo carried out the first Annual Learning Assessment Report, which provided a country wide picture of the level of basic numeracy and literacy skills of our children in primary schools. Over 40,000 children in over 20,000 households, across 38 districts in Tanzania were assessed - this was the largest survey of its kind. One year on... Have these results changed? Are our children learning more?
