Literacy in Ethiopia G2G Case Study
This case study traces the history of USAID Ethiopia’s involvement in the education sector as the backdrop to the current decision to engage in government-to-government assistance. The recent national policy shift from access to quality and learning achievement coincides with the Mission’s decision to focus on improved reading and writing for 15 million primary school pupils. This case study follows the evolution of the Mission’s involvement in the sector, outlining the factors and challenges that influence the use of partner country systems to achieve Goal 1 of the Education Strategy. Information for the case study was gathered from an extensive review of relevant documents and interviews with USAID, government, donor and third party representatives in the country.
The purpose of the G2G Education country case studies is to capture the lessons learned and effective practices through documentation of Missions’ operational steps in assessing, designing, implementing and evaluating education projects with G2G financing.
