Grant Description
USAID/Bangladesh anticipates the award of one Cooperative Agreement as a result of this RFA to implement SUCCEED: Early Learning for School Success Program. The program objectives are to improve the performance of pre-primary, 1st and 2nd grade education in Bangladesh through innovative learning tools and approaches SUCCEED will supplement and build on Sesame Street Bangladesh by developing and testing innovative, school and community-based methodologies, including selective use of technology, to improve the quality of education provided children at pre-primary and primary levels, with initial concentration in the latter on grades 1-2. Substantively, SUCCEED will focus on increasing levels of achievement in foundation competencies: reading, writing, numeracy, and critical thinking. The program will enhance the efficiency and equity of the education system by reducing repetition, retaining children - especially girls, the disabled and other disadvantaged children - in school, and, by providing more effective learning opportunities, assist disadvantaged children to succeed in school. Improved teaching, strengthened school management and governance, enhanced participation of communities in supporting their schools and holding them accountable, and greater local and national advocacy, particularly for ECD and increased transparency and accountability, are key components. Counter-corruption initiatives specifically targeted on the education sector will be included.
