Strengthening USAID--Peace Corps Collaboration with Emphasis on Basic Education Programs in Sub-Saharan Africa.
Russell, Donovan; Engels, John, Ed.
Basic education programs in Africa are most successful at the community and school levels. At the community level, program implementers search for parents who are motivated, informed, and skilled at creating an environment conducive to student learning. In classrooms, they look for greater numbers of children experiencing a high quality, pupil-centered learning experience. Over the years, a number of U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID) basic education programs have collaborated with the U.S. Peace Corps to ensure such results. This pamphlet presents lessons learned by USAID. The discussion describes four broad types of collaboration that have occurred between USAID and the Peace Corps, provides illustrative examples of collaboration, and suggests ways each could be practiced and promoted effectively.
