Nigeria Reading and Access Research Activity

The Nigeria Reading and Access Research Activity (RARA) is designed to carry out research in the areas of early grade reading and access to education in Nigeria. The project will identify factors that improve reading skills and increase access to schooling for out-of-school children, especially for girls and almajiri (Islamic boarding school children). RARA will also help inform government actors, donor partners, civil society, the private sector, and USAID technical staff in developing a more nuanced understanding of activities that can be taken to scale in northern Nigeria to achieve this goal.
