VSO Rwanda (Rwanda)
|Much has changed since VSO started 60 years ago. We’ve gone from being a UK charity to a truly global development organization. In 2016/2017 alone, we worked with over 7,000 volunteers from all over the world and from all backgrounds to deliver services that had an impact on the lives of almost 2.6 million people in the 24 countries where we work. Our programmes focus on the areas of health, education, and livelihoods, with an increasing emphasis on resilience building, social accountability, gender, and social inclusion. We believe progress is only possible when we work together and that strong partnerships are crucial to delivering positive change. That’s why we work with over 500 partner organizations, from local and national governments to businesses, NGOs, funders, charities, and community groups. Currently, over 30% of our people are recruited from within the country in which they work, and we continue to grow the share of community and national volunteers involved in our programmes. We also send increasing numbers of volunteers from one developing country to another. However, our vision has remained the same; to build a world without poverty.|
About Building Learning Foundations (BLF)
The Building Learning Foundations Programme (BLF) is funded by the British People through the UK government through the British High Commission Kigali as part of its Learning for All programme. The programme is focused on improving learning outcomes at P1 to P5 in English and Mathematics. By improving the foundations pf pupils learning in primary, the intention is that more pupils will stay in school and be better prepared to continue to learn in higher grades, thereby increasing equitable access to primary and secondary education in Rwanda. The Programme is implemented by a consortium of organizations; the Education Development Trust, the British Council, and VSO in all 30 Districts of Rwanda. BLF began in July 2017 and will be implemented until September 2023.
The overall job purpose is to facilitate the implementation of improved teaching in English literacy and numeracy skills in line with the Building Learning Foundation project.
