Uwezo East Africa Original Strategy: Promoting Learning 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 5-16 years in Kenya, Tanzania and Uganda through an innovative, civic-driven and public accountability approach to social change. Uwezo will enable policy makers as well as ordinary citizens – i.e. parents, students, local communities and public at large – to become aware of actual levels of children’s literacy and numeracy, and build on that awareness to stimulate practical and policy change across East Africa.

This document outlines the proposal for the first four years (2009-2013) of this initiative, specifically: (1) the situation analysis; (2) theory of change; (3) goal, outcomes and outputs; (4) Uwezo’s progress so far; (5) program activities; (6) governance and management structure; (7) reporting; (8) potential risks and mitigation strategies; and (9) budget.
