ACCELERE! is a five-year programme, funded jointly by UK aid and USAID, to improve education in eight provinces across DRC, including those most affected by conflict and displacement.
It has three main objectives: better access and equity for both girls and boys, higher levels of reading and numeracy, and strengthened governance and accountability at national, provincial and school levels. Our team at Cambridge Education is working with a range of stakeholders – from government bodies to civil society organisations and local communities – to raise standards.
So far, we’ve helped to develop strategies and polices to support change, introduced tools to aid planning, monitoring and reporting, delivered training and workshops to share knowledge and best practice, and produced new, and better teaching materials. Ultimately, ACCELERE! aims to improve learning outcomes for one million Congolese girls and boys.
