Global Partnership for Education / Malawi Education Sector Improvement Programme

2018–2020

We are leading two subcomponents of the Malawi Education Sector Improvement Programme: developing a tablet-based app for zonal EMIS officers to monitor pupil and teacher enrolment, attendance and use of time, with automated reports to local and national government; and developing a two-way voice and SMS platform to enable the Ministry to communicate with and receive messages from community members on issues affecting education delivery in their area.

Early Childhood Development Data Collection & Management Reforms

2018–2019

As Perivoli Schools Trust expands, we are supporting them to standardise data collection and management tools, ensuring data collected can tell the story of their success across multiple countries. We have developed a new online database, which will link to their website to update data displayed there. We are in the process of developing a tablet based data collection tool, which will be used in three countries in early 2019 and, in the interim, have revised and standardised existing paper-based data collection forms in Namibia and Malawi.
