Literacy Boost Ethiopia (Tigray and West Showa)

Three components make up the Literacy Boost program:  teacher professional development, including training and coaching around the 5Ts; community mobilization, working with community volunteers and parents to promote education and reading clubs; and frequent student assessments to monitor overall project progress and to help teachers monitor individual student progress.   The program is adapted and tailored to local conditions and institutions.  Save the Children makes a variety of country specific project documents—baseline studies, progress reports and public presentations—available online at a resource center maintained by Save the Children Sweden.
