Covid19 Education Sector Response & Recovery Project

Profile

This project is a technical collaboration between KAPE and MoEYS-UNICEF to assist with technical and quality assurance support to Ministry departments leading to the development of Continuous Learning Worksheets and Remedial Programming as part of a special grant from GPE3 to support Covid19 Response and Recovery in education. The project began in December 2020 and will continue for one year. KAPE’s role focuses heavily on both helping with donor coordination as well as technical support to individual departments. The development of a remedial learning package developed in consultation with PED and DCD will be one of the major achievements of the project along with rationalization of online learning activities.
