GoCongo’s current goal for these schools is to raise them up to a consistent standard of educational quality, in which all students gain key knowledge and skills that can equip them to contribute to life in their community and beyond. In order to achieve this, a baseline study of the current state of the schools is underway, with the goal of measuring the following parameters:

Children’s learning outcomes
Children’s enrollment and attendance
Children’s health and nutrition
Parents’ attitude towards their children’s education
Teachers’ capacity and effort
