Pioneer Country Initiative launches in Uganda

As part of a Pioneer Country Initiative, President Museveni will be encouraged to make education a domestic policy priority, enact reforms for greater effectiveness and efficiency, and increase domestic financing. In return for these commitments, the  Education Commission will work to bridge partnerships with the international community to marshal additional financial and technical support. Countries electing to participate in this effort will be prioritized for consideration for any new investment mechanisms or innovations.

Commenting ahead of this first visit, President Kikwete said: “A bold, unprecedented report such as the Commission’s needs an equally bold implementation plan. That is what the Pioneer Country Initiative offers. And so I now call upon the leaders I will be visiting, as well as those throughout the continent and indeed across the globe, to take action and commit to expanding education financing and implementing the reforms necessary to realize the vision of a Learning Generation.”
