Rwanda: Midterm survey tracking literacy, knowledge, attitudes, and practices at the school and community level

Mureke Dusome was a four-year USAID-funded project that aimed to foster partnerships between schools and the broader community in a bid to improve children’s literacy outcomes. The project was being implemented by Save the Children and its partner organizations, namely Umuhuza and Urunana DC, through a phased approach in all 30 districts of the country from January 2016 to September 2019. The goal of Mureke Dusome was to improve P1-P3 students’ ability to read with fluency and comprehension.

The main objective for this midterm evaluation was to analyze project indicators after 14 months of implementation in the 2 pilot districts of Burera and Gicumbi and 12 months of implementation in the 10 Phase 2 districts. The evaluation provides a nationally representative ‘snapshot’ of the situation of schoolcommunity partnerships for literacy in Rwanda as of the data collection in February/March 2018.
