TEN/MET Final Report on ECCD now available

The Final Report of the TEN/MET Baseline Study on Promoting Children's Rights to Early Childhood Care in Tanzania, is now complete. It is available for download as a PDF file on the website at this link.

The study was conducted by Prof. Lyabwene Mtahabwa (PhD) of the The University of Dodoma, before the end of 2013. Its objectives were:

  1. Establish the level of enrolment in preschool as well as the barriers to enrolment
  2. Determine trends in budget allocation by the Government to ECCE
  3. Investigate child abuse cases and actions taken against such cases
  4. Find out the extent to which parents and communities are aware of the need to enrol their children in ECCE programmes as well as protect them from abuse
  5. Enable preparation of advocacy and campaign tools to increase access to and attendance of young children in ECCE as well as ensure their safety and security, particularly for disadvantaged children

Global Campaign for Education 2014

Letter from the Global Campaign for Education:

As you may already be aware, the EFA-GMR team has been running an online
discussion with teachers around the world every Tuesday using Twitter.
During Global Action Week, #TeacherTuesday is being dedicated to education
and disability, and Siti, a teacher from Indonesia who works teaching
children with disabilities, will be the person answering questions at 9am
GMT, Tuesday 6 May. To take part in the discussion, please follow
@EFAreport or www.twitter.com/EFAReport. You can ask questions or just view the discussion. I have attached an image we will be using to advertise the
chat - please feel free to share this on your social networks.

We have now added a large number of statements for members and supporters
of the campaign to use on Twitter. We will be sharing these with the full
GCE supporter database, and we hope you can all forward these to your own
networks. These can be found here:


We have added three photo images with campaign messages which can be shared easily on Facebook - scroll down the page until after the Twitter messages. Again, please feel free to send these to your own networks
