Grants to this Grantee
for expanding and evaluating a program to improve reading instruction in Northern Uganda  
This grant to Mango Tree Educational Enterprises would support the expansion of a successful low-cost method to teach children to read in their mother tongue and transition them to English to 200 more schools in Northern Uganda. While developing the model in a smaller number of schools, Mango Tree found that students in their classes were one year ahead of their counterparts in other schools: first graders performed as well as or better than comparison learners at the end of second grade. During the expansion, researchers from the University of Michigan will conduct a randomized external evaluation to measure the impact of Mango Tree’s model on student learning outcomes. If successful, this grant would demonstrate how the government can cost-effectively implement its mother-tongue instruction policy, thereby serving as a model to expand this type of intervention across Uganda.
