Education Improvement Programme Summary
AKF is committed to ensuring girls and boys, women, and men, are equipped with the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values to help them interact effectively with the world and be contributing members of a pluralistic society. This demands AKF to assume a holistic, life-long, and systems approach to education. AKF ensures all interventions are globally informed, locally rooted, are embedded in government and community interests and structures, and work to promote social inclusion, equity, and pluralism.
As a development agency, AKF partners with a global network of local government schools, government education actors and systems, and civil society actors within education systems to co-develop and test affordable and scalable evidence-based models about how best to create quality, equitable learning environments and improve holistic learning outcomes for the most marginalised children. In Kenya, AKF delivers the Education Improvement Programme in the Coast Region.
In Mombasa, AKF is currently implementing three projects as part of the EIP, Tucheza Kujifunza, Values-Based Education, and Schools2030. In 2021, the Programme Officer will predominately focus on TuKu, a project that aims to institutionalise playful pedagogies within formal, non-formal, and informal learning opportunities to equip primary aged children with the knowledge, skills, attitudes, and values they need to contribute effectively to society. To achieve this, TuKu will work with national and county governments, education leaders, schools and education institutions, civil society, community partners, and parents to enable teachers and schools to effectively implement the competency-based curriculum using a variety of playful learning approaches.
