Systemic Change in Early Childhood Literacy (Lessons from Save the Children Rwanda, 2012-2017)
July 22, 2023
This learning paper reflects on Save the Children’s journey to bring about systemic change for an improved literacy environment in Rwanda through its program called Advancing the Right to Read (ARR). This program’s goal is to promote and sustain literacy development for children ages 0 to 9. Through this programme, Save the Children sought to build awareness and understanding, strengthen capacity and advocate for policy consensus among government and civil society, embedding the ideas of ARR into national systems for sustainable change.
