BEPS is pleased to announce the release of four documents designed to further the advancement of basic education throughout the world:

 

A Healthy Child in a Healthy School Environment: A Look at the CHANGES Program in Zambia Reaching for the Sky: Uganda’s Quest for Universal Primary Education Education in Emergencies: Critical Questions and Challenges Making a World of Difference: BEPS Achievements, 2000-2004
“A Healthy Child in a Healthy School Environment: A Look at the CHANGES Program in Zambia;” (PDF) “Reaching for the Sky: Uganda’s Quest for Universal Primary Education;” (PDF)* “Education in Emergencies: Critical Questions and Challenges;” (PDF) “Making a World of Difference: BEPS Achievements, 2000-2004.” (PDF)

 

Two of these documents summarize findings from field-based activities that have been conducted under BEPS. “A Healthy Child in a Healthy School Environment” presents the teacher-administered school health and nutrition program to improve student performance being implemented under the Communities Supporting Health, HIV/AIDS, Nutrition, Gender, and Equity Education in Schools (CHANGES) Program in Zambia.

“Reaching for the Sky” presents Uganda’s integrated approach to expanding primary school access, quality, and retention efforts previously initiated in Uganda. Widespread consensus building and multi-level stakeholder buy-in have been used in this effort to build quality and sustainability.

“Education in Emergencies: Critical Questions and Challenges” highlights ten challenges and related resources for education programs in post-crisis situations. This publication provides insights for international education professionals who are faced with initiating or reestablishing basic education under particularly difficult circumstances.

The fourth and final document, “Making a World of Difference,” summarizes the entire span of BEPS initiatives since the year 2000 -- over 65 activities in at least 39 countries. Activities have included assessments, research, technical assistance, program design and implementation, pilot projects, publications, and regional and international workshops. Descriptions are organized by region and country.
