USAID Learn Together Activity

Speeches Shim


The primary goal of the USAID Learn Together Activity in Tajikistan is to improve basic education skills for students in grades 1-4, with a focus on improving reading comprehension, critical thinking skills, and mathematics. Intended coverage is in at least 80 percent of primary schools with attention to regions with historically lower learning outcomes. The five-year activity (October 2020 – September 2025) will use an evidence-based instruction intervention to improve literacy outcomes and will provide training, coaching, and materials to teachers in grades 1-4. Supplementary reading and math materials will be made available to students to complement instruction and build academic and content-specific vocabulary and numeracy skills.


The USAID Learn Together Activity will support Tajikistan’s Ministry of Education and Science capacity to develop and implement cohesive primary education policies and programs including systems strengthening and public-private partnerships. The activity will directly contribute to key objectives in Tajikistan’s National Strategy for Education Development (2012-2020): professionalize teacher education, develop and implement quality assurance measures for competency-based learning, and utilize relevant data to inform policies and programs. There will be coordination with USAID’s current Read with Me activity, the Ministry of Education and Science, and development and donor partners. These partnerships including with the private sector will be key drivers to improve the primary education system in Tajikistan.
