Our Pandemic Response


We ran a rapid randomized trial and produced some of the world's first experimental evidence during the pandemic to limit learning loss, reducing innumeracy by 31 percent. Read the academic paper below. We are now launching 3-5 replication trials globally. We also have an ongoing trial in adolescent sexual and reproductive health during the pandemic, and launched a suite of national radio programs. We have been building state-of-the-art M&E systems which can generate rapid, rigorous and policy-relevant evidence for years. During the pandemic, these systems proved critical.

Teaching at the Right Level (TaRL) is a cost-effective remedial education program. TaRL is proven to improve basic numeracy and literacy skills in early primary years through learner-centered materials tailored to students' current competency levels.
