SCOPE – Mureke Dusome
School Community Partnership for Education (SCOPE) Urunana DC signed a partnership agreement with Save the Children for the USAID funded School Community Partnership for Education project (SCOPE) The Partnership Agreement will last 4 years (February 1, 2016 to September 30, 2019). Urunana DC intervention is to increase the effective community and parental involvement to improve literacy skills through changing the knowledge, attitudes and practices that keep parents from effectively supporting their children’s reading.
The primary audience for the SBCC campaign is parents, community members, and school leadership. Secondary audiences include sector, district, and national government staff, as well as the private sector. The main activity is the production and broadcast of messages on literacy for lower primary grades through Urunana soap opera. During the first year, 36 episodes of Urunana with messages on literacy will be produced and broadcast.
