Additional Information on Eligibility
Applications are only solicited from the Tanzanian Ministry of Education and Culture. The Tanzanian Ministry of Education and Culture has a very unique ability to conduct the activities described in the program announcement. It has a legal and legislative mandate to support and carry-out education initiatives in Tanzania. The Ministry of Education and Culture has all of the required technical expertise that will ensure the completion of grant requirements, has considerable experience in providing education to all Tanzanian youth, and has an overall goal of ensuring quality, access and equity at all levels of education. Tanzanian Government policies aim to improve quality education and training, expand the provision of education and training, promote science and technology and broaden the base for the financing of education and training. The Ministry of Education and Culture is the only organization in Tanzania with resources readily available for reaching a large number of youth within the educational system. The agency has immediate access to the technical expertise of teachers and administrators at all levels to plan, develop and implement a quality HIV/AIDS educational curriculum. All education managers at national, Regional, District and post-primary formal education and training institutions are required to have a university degree, professional training in education and management, and appropriate experience. Education managers at the ward and primary-school levels have a certificate or diploma in education, as well as professional training in educational management and administration from a recognized institution. The Ministrys existing infrastructure is sufficient to administer the grant. In addition, HHS/CDC Tanzania has developed a mechanism for providing on-going technical assistance to MOEC grantees in monitoring and managing U.S. Government grants. The Tanzania Institute of Education has the responsibility for designing, developing, reviewing, updating and monitoring the implementation of secondary-school curricula and for merging theory and practice in the ordinary-level secondary-school curriculum. The Tanzania Institute of Education designs, develops, monitors and evaluates all teacher-education curricula for all certificate- and diploma-level courses. The agency publishes three major publications that include the annual Education and Training Policy, Cultural Policy and Basic Education Statistics (BEST). This provides sufficient evidence of the Ministrys existing capacity for implementing the program and historical evidence of its ability to effectively carry out this work. The program is within the scope of the Ministrys mission, which is the "Realization of Universal Primary Education (UPE), the eradication of illiteracy and attainment of a level of tertiary education and training commensurate with the critical high-quality human resources required to effectively respond to the development challenges at all levels." The Ministry has a recognized and respected standing in the community, and is credible among the people of Tanzania.
