Learning gains for our preschool students

We are excited to start the 2023 school year with more preschool students than ever in our two community-based preschools in Chokwe district, Mozambique. 

Last year we were able to track major improvements in the learning for the preschool students, so we are excited to see so many children enrolling in our program.

2022 was the first full year of our preschool program in Duvane and Bombôfo villages, and we measured substantial learning for the children in the program. The MSLI team implemented learning evaluations every trimester for our 5-year-old children, and we found significant improvements by the end of the year.

For example, one of the questions asked the students to identify numbers written randomly on the chalkboard: 4, 9, 3, 2, 8, 1, 5, 7, 10, 6. At the end of the first trimester, students got an average of 5.56 numbers correct. By the end of the third trimester, the students got an average 8.37 numbers correct. These children are now much better prepared for the first grade this year.

We will continue tracking these results throughout the 2023 school year! Thank you for your support of these children in Mozambique.
