Educate a child- for Zanzibar.

Project Overview: 

The goal of the Education For All OOSC in Zanzibar project is to improve equitable access to, and retention in, quality primary education for all OOSC in Zanzibar. Moreover, the project aims to reinforce the Government of Zanzibar’s attempt to achieve universal primary education and aligns with the ZEDP II, which seeks to boost access amongst the most disadvantaged children.


To achieve its goal, the project aims to:

1.       Increase community engagement and support in identification, enrolment, and retention of OOSC;

2.       Improve school infrastructure and safe learning environments for primary school children in Zanzibar;

3.       Improve primary school teacher competencies and motivation to effectively deliver quality teaching for OOSC;

4.       Increase access to psychosocial, mentorship and life-skills support for OOSC;

5.       Improve capacity of government institutions and schools to use technological innovations in planning, coordination, and monitoring quality and equity in education of OOSC


In addition, the Education For All OOSC in Zanzibar project will scale-up Zanzibar’s existing Alternative-Learning Programme (ALP) to integrate OOSC into the formal education system.
