Although we realise the barriers to girls’ achievement in schools, there are some hopeful signs. Here at EQUIP-Tanzania, we have just receieved this comment from one of the INSET coordinators in Tabora region

Ms Happiness Nyangusu an INSET Coordinator at Cheyo ‘A’ primary school talks about changes that she has experienced after school based training. She feels the training has improved her ways of teaching and motivating girls participate in their learning: She says:

‘Now I can teach using interactive methods specifically teach by doing which engage girls in the learning. We should not see teaching as routine work but we have to make teaching interesting to the pupils and girls in particular in order to promote their talents. What I have noted girls have become more active sometimes than boys and seem to like the lessons.’
