WHAT IS KIUFUNZA?
KiuFunza is a program that provides small cash incentives to public school teachers in Tanzania conditional on the learning outcomes of students in their class. The program goal is to improve foundational reading and numeracy skills in grades 1, 2 and 3, by providing inspiration and focus to the teaching staff.
