Evaluation of Somalia's Accelerated Quality Learning


Evaluation of Somalia’s Accelerated Quality Learning Project: A five-year adaptive management and evaluation project for effective alternative education models that target out-of-school learners

Creative Associates International, Inc. will implement the five-year program Bar Ama Baro ("Teach or Learn" in Somali) that aims to increase access to quality education and support accelerated learning for out-of-school children and youth who have been persistently left behind.  The program focuses on teacher quality and student learning, and invokes the spirit of other successful Somali-led literacy campaigns.

Bar Ama Baro will target Somali out-of-school children and youth between approximately 8-15 years old.  The program aims to: increase student enrollment in schools; create safe spaces to learn; improve students' literacy, numeracy and socio-emotional skills; and enhance the Federal Government of Somalia's capacity to support these schools.
