Let Children Stay in School
The project was built under the following backgrounds: Increased Early Childhood Development Programs, Poor transition of children from Community Based Childcare Centres (CBCCs) to primary school, Lack of tailor made teaching and learning materials in STD 1-2, Standard 1 and 2 teachers not undergoing refresher course and Poor coordination among stakeholders at national, district and community level.
The project was started on 1st June, 2015 and implemented up to May 2018 with Roger Federer Foundation as the main funding partner.
According to an independent evaluation of the project after implementation, it was established that the project had contributed to about 63 percent in the dropout rate in the lower classes.
The project has been implemented in 114 primary schools within six districts of Chitipa, Rumphi, Ntchisi, Lilongwe, Machinga and Nsanje.
