Aga Khan Foundation has launched a project to improve learning and influence teachers to deliver literacy and numeracy curriculum in 49 primary schools in Dokolo and Amolatar districts.

The project worth sh800m was launched by the commissioner for basic education, Daniel Nkaada, at Angwecibange Primary School in Dokolo.

The two-year project is focusing on the thematic curriculum in Primary One to Three and putting emphasis on the provision of reading materials, teacher preparedness and setting up a library.

Nkaada applauded Aga Khan for supporting the Ministry of Education and Sports on the thematic curriculum.

He said the Government had set up a number of initiatives to implement the curriculum in lower classes but there were limited resources.

Nkaada warned teachers against relaxing and failing to set standards as required by the Government policy.

He said the Government’s policy on automatic promotion was good but teachers should put more efforts to enhance the quality of education.

“Do all it takes to let the pupils pass,” Nkaada said adding that inspectors should also visit schools atleast six times in a term.
