    • Project

      When the government re-introduced free primary education in 2002 with the Primary Education Development Programme (PEDP), it came with a particularly important innovation: the capitation grant. Primary aims of the grant were to replace revenue lost to schools because of the abolition of fees and to improve the quality of education by making real resources available at the school level. In particular, the capitation grant was meant to finance the purchase of textbooks and other teaching and learning materials, as well as to fund repairs, administration materials, and examination expenses. Children with disabilities receive a higher capitation grant than non-disabled children.

      The Voice-funded project aims to ensure that primary school pupils with disabilities are fully engaged in planning how their capitation grants should be used so that their educational needs can be met. Secondly it seeks to increase awareness about the capitation grants in order to enhance accountability and promote wise use of the government funds to improve education for people living with disabilities in the country. The overall objective of this project is to make sure PWDs literacy level is increased. This can be promoted through creating supportive learning/school environments for pupils with a disability which can be done by making sure that capitation grants are effectively used to provide a friendly schooling environment.
