Dubai Cares, in partnership with a consortium of NGOs and research institutions, is supporting ‘Fursa kwa Watoto’ (“Opportunities for Children” in Kiswahili), a multi-agency program that is helping improve the developmental and learning outcomes of pre-primary boys and girls in marginalized Tanzanian communities through the training of inservice educators.

The program ensures the following:
• Improved learning outcomes for pre-primary-aged boys and girls in target areas
• Increased institutional capacity for early childhood development programming and cost-effective funding strategies and allocation, particularly by school districts and management committees
• Enhanced evidence on the impact of quality early childhood development interventions that can directly inform program and policy development within Tanzania and Africa at-large

The program activities include:
• Designing and testing pre-primary enhancement packages aimed at improving the quality of pre-primary education in two different service delivery modalities: i) pre-primary classes attached to existing primary schools; and ii) satellite pre-primary classes in difficult and hard to reach areas
• Measuring the impact of these enhancement packages on learning outcomes for children at entry into primary school and at the end of Standard 2
