Creating systems-level change
With support from the Mastercard Foundation, Stichting Dioraphte, and other partners, we launched the Tomorrow Is Now program to leverage the experience of some of our most promising Fellowship Alumni. Working alongside government officials in their new role as “Technical Advisors,” they’re implementing our Community Education Volunteer and Roots to Rise models at the Sub-County and District levels to create sustainable, systems-level change.
Our Technical Advisors have helped 62 Sub-Counties recruit, support, and create training manuals for local Community Education Volunteers. They’ve also led workshops for local leaders on data collection and monitoring & evaluation, which builds the capacity of government officials to scale foundational learning initiatives in their communities.
“The TIN program has helped our local government identify the problems with the education system in our Sub-Counties and make concrete plans for how to address them. One of the most beneficial aspects of the program has been the training sessions. By gathering all of us government officials together and hosting interactive sessions on research skills, data collection, and making detailed work plans, TIN allowed us to articulate our unique roles and responsibilities in order to collaborate effectively and strengthen our performance as a team.”
