Our goal is to promote effective school governance and leadership. Our model includes training and on-site support for Head Teachers (HTs) and School Management and Development Committees (SMDCs) on leadership, school planning and management. SMDC capacity is developed on mobilising resources for their schools, parental engagement to promote student participation and dropout prevention. Our work with HTs prepares them to lead and manage their schools effectively.
