Project Information

The five-year Leveraging Education Assistance Resources in Nigeria (LEARN) project will support long-lasting improvements in reading outcomes for students in first and second grade. It is funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development and is carried out in close collaboration with federal partners and select Nigeria States (designated as legacy [Bauchi and Sokoto], launching, and technical assistance). By ensuring that the federal policy, funding, and monitoring frameworks include context-appropriate, standards-based assessment, materials, training, and administrative supports, and that state and local authorities have the implementation procedures, capacity, and resources to carry out and sustain standards-based, data-driven EGR, LEARN aims to strengthen and scale early grade reading (EGR) best practice. The project’s goal is to give school-community, local, state, and federal systems a sense of ownership and to increase their capacity in order to create a foundation for adequate, dependable data-driven funding, monitoring, and performance that will increase equity, inclusion, and wellbeing in order to achieve sustained EGR gains. Therefore, LEARN will build on the knowledge gained from earlier reading programs in Nigeria to propose a flexible, economical EGR intervention model that can be adjusted to state circumstances.
