Published by: 

PAL Network has continuously promoted the salience of Foundational Literacy and Numeracy (FLN) in the Global South. The Policy Dialogue on Evidence for Learning in Nairobi between March 28-29, 2023 is part of our ongoing attempt of involving multiple stakeholders in discussions and ideation sessions to support children’s foundational learning in the SSA region. This project and event were supported by the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation (BMGF).

The event included participatory workshops for regional and national stakeholders. Activities around thematic discussions, and best practice exchanges fostered policy dialogues. Participants also got the chance to interact with children, teachers, parents, and community leaders in a field visit where participants got to observe the citizen led assessment and had a first-hand practical experience in assessment of children’s FLN, using Citizen Led Assessment tools.
