We work with government and non-state actors in the education space to implement evidence-based programs for improved learning.
The Action unit supports evidence-informed programmes across PAL Network member countries to help children with foundational learning. This is achieved by (i) strengthening, scaling and sustaining existing action programmes; and (ii) supporting innovation and technology through network-wide initiatives that improve the programmes.
Between 2018 and 2021, the network members reached over 164,000 children in over 2,300 disadvantaged communities across eight countries. In addition, PAL Network members have demonstrated more interest in investing in “learning camps” where children are taught reading and maths using level-based teaching-learning methods. As the programmes are inspired by Pratham’s Teaching at the Right Level (TaRL) approach, PAL and the Pratham team conducted a series of workshops, an introductory workshop in 2017 and a content and material development workshop in 2018. These workshops helped the members to adapt the approach to their context by organising in-country training.
