Uwezo Strategy Update: Improving Learning Outcomes in East Africa 2009-2013

Uwezo, meaning ‘capability’ in Kiswahili, is a four year initiative to improve competencies in literacy and numeracy among children aged 6-16 years in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda through an innovative, citizen-driven and public accountability approach to social change. Uwezo enables policy makers as well as ordinary citizens – parents, students, local communities and the public at large – to become aware of actual levels of children’s literacy and numeracy, and build on that awareness to stimulate practical community and policy change across East Africa.

Uwezo is at the midway point of its first four year (2009-2013) program cycle. A tremendous amount has been achieved, and lessons learned. This document is an updated version of the original four year strategy and proposal that incorporates adaptations made based on experience and learning. It is organized in seven sections as follows: (1) the situation analysis; (2) theory of change; (3) goal, outcomes and outputs; (4) program activities; (5); governance and staffing structure; (6) risk management; and (7) budget.
