PARENTS STEP IN!


Objective


Mubyeyi Tera Intambwe! is a pilot innovative, aiming to decrease dropout rates and positively impact school completion.

 

Background

This initiative is driven by the 2012 Organic Law Governing Organization of Education, encouraging parents, civil society and communities to engage in improving the education system.

Usual measures that address school dropout are top-down institutional interventions led by MINEDUC and schools.
However, research has shown that learning outcomes improved when parents and communities were engaged. 

 

In this new approach, parents and communities will be empowered to fulfill the leading role in addressing youth dropout. This will also enable them to understand the importance of investing long-term in their children’s education. Furthermore, it is expected that direct collaboration between Community Based Organizations, Community Education Workers and Parent-Teacher Associations, will improve the quality of education through their collective participation in school management. Targeted districts are Musanze, Ngororero and Gasabo.

  • April 2013
  • Duration: 2013-2015
