Education Quality Improvement Programme in Tanzania (EQUIP-T)

The EQUIP-Tanzania program, funded by DFID and implemented in cooperation with the Government of Tanzania, aims to improve the quality of education, especially for girls, in seven relatively educationally-disadvantaged regions of Tanzania, with the eventual goal of replication to the whole of Tanzania. Covering one quarter of the primary education system, with 3,680 schools, approximately 49,000 teachers, EQUIP-Tanzania will support more than 2 million girls and boys across 48 districts to have an equal opportunity to access and benefit from quality education. Project activities focus on teacher performance, school leadership, planning and management, and increasing community participation.
