“Read to Learn” Impact Evaluation

Funded by: Porticus Foundation Country: Haiti Date Range: 2013-present Project Lead: Institute for Educational Initiatives Notre Dame Collaborators: NDIGD

Nearly half of the adult population in Haiti is illiterate. In response, the University of Notre Dame’s Institute for Educational Initatives launched the "Read to Learn" project, an innovative literacy program. The program uses supportive lesson plans for teachers and students, and provides extensive teacher training. NDIGD Monitoring and Evaluation Specialists are implementing a rigorous, randomized controlled trial to evaluate the overall progress made by students. With the information and data provided by NDIGD, project implementers will be better prepared to strategically scale-up the project in future years.
