What we did:

Funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development, the nearly $50 million “Bar Ama Baro” (“Teach or Learn” in Somali), will target Somali out-of-school children and youth ages 8 to 15 to increase student enrollment, create safe learning spaces and improve literacy, numeracy and socio-emotional skills. Under Creative’s direction, Bar Ama Baro will be implemented with Save the Children, ORB International, Charlie Goldsmith Associates and SIL LEAD. Bar Ama Baro builds on Somalia’s new national curriculum, Education Sector Strategic Plan, and National Development Plan-9 which lay out a stronger, inclusive vision for education.

CGA is developing the digital Education Management Information System (EMIS) for both Federal and Sub-Federal Ministries of Education.

The aim is to enhance EMIS in the Somali education sector at present with a view of the best prospects of use and sustainability and in harmony with wider education data systems.
