Morogoro – Today, representatives from the United States government, through the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), and the government of Tanzania celebrated their continued partnership to advance quality education in Tanzania through the launch of the new Jifunze Uelewe (“Learn and Understand”) activity. The four and a half year, $38.5 million activity aims to sustainably improve the literacy and numeracy for all pre-primary and primary education learners in Morogoro, Iringa, Mtwara, Ruvuma, and Zanzibar.

Despite the rapid growth of access to education in Tanzania, the quality of education and learning outcomes remains lower than in peer countries. With the introduction of fee-free basic education, the number of teachers does not match the increased student demand, particularly from children with disabilities. This negatively impacts education quality, evidenced by early-grade reading scores dropping from 12 percent of second graders reading at grade level in 2013 to only 5.4 percent reading at grade level in 2017.
