Expressions of Interest – Uganda FLAG Programme

Education Development Trust

Education Development Trust is interested in bidding for a 3 year FCDO funded education project in Uganda, Foundational Learning for Girls (FLAG). The programme is designed to help children in the early grades improve literacy and numeracy skills, stay in school, and learn more effectively. It is based on a Community Led Learning approach that provides essential learning skills for children, including those who are not in school, improves school attendance, and provides evidence of effective learning approaches. More children will be able to benefit from improved learning outcomes in Ugandan primary schools.
