The Rwanda country team has been meeting together since April 2019 to discuss data and measurement issues in Rwanda. Participation in the consortium has spurred the team to map currently available data on young children in Rwanda, including data on the quality of pre-primary programs, child development and learning outcomes, health and nutrition, as well as current efforts to use data related to ECD in Rwanda. The team is now considering strategies to assess student’s reading skills at the start of Primary 1.
USAID and the Government of Rwanda are increasingly interested in investing in the early childhood years. Together for Early Childhood Evidence offers an opportunity for early childhood education stakeholders to come together to discuss data and measurement issues in the sub-sector.
