Challenge

In Zanzibar, approximately 140,000 children between the ages of 4 and 15 are out of school. Poverty, lower educational attainment of the household head, living in a rural area, and being male are all factors associated with a higher likelihood of 4-15 year olds being OOS. The current schooling system does not have significant teacher capacity to absorb additional children. A sizeable minority of teachers (about 20%) are neither trained nor qualified, which is an important teacher capacity gap.

Solution

CR HOPE has developed a training program for its (local) teachers, which aims to empower them with the right tools and skills to improve their current teaching capability. Qualified volunteers, who visit and stay on the island also support the school by assisting the teachers on the day-to-day operations.

Long-Term Impact

The current schooling system does not have significant infrastructure capacity to absorb additional children. This is due to a lack of available school infrastructure and to inequality in its distribution across schools. CR HOPE is committed to decrease the illiteracy rate in the region and fight against poverty through quality education for both girls and boys. The 'Seeds of Light' school currently provides education to 53 children and aims to double the amount of students by 2022.
